IDTI 21.5-inch Full HD touchscreen display for $300

Touchscreen displays are slowly making their way into the home, accelerated since Microsoft stepped up their touch functionality in Windows 7, but they're still expensive.  IDTI reckon they have a low-cost alternative, however; their 21.5-inch display responds to pen input and two-point multitouch thanks to a proprietary touch technology, but best of all they're expecting to launch it with a $300 price tag.

ASUS RT-N56U “fashion” router plus RT-N76U, RT-N13U & AP-N13M hit CeBIT 2010

I don't think we've ever played a game of "wireless router, cheese grater or oil-filled radiator?" here on SlashGear, but there's a first time for everything.  Forgive me for giving the answer away, but you're looking at the dimpled front of the ASUS RT-N56U router, an unusually designed and certainly distinctive addition to the company's range.  It's in fact one of a number of new routers ASUS have wheeled out for CeBIT 2010 this week.

Shuttle I-Power GXT Mini external GPU gets video demo

Gigabyte's external-GPU BookTop M1305 and M1405 notebooks aren't the only machines relying on a separate graphics boost at CeBIT 2010 this week.  Shuttle have brought along their interpretation, in the shape of the I-Power GXT Mini, a compact box fitted - in this case - with an ATI Radeon HD 4650 that hooks up to Shuttle netbooks via a special GXP port that looks a little like a larger HDMI port.
