ASUS outs the E210: its first, really fan-less mini PC

ASUS outs the E210: its first, really fan-less mini PC

Mini PCs are really a dime a dozen of late, but very few of them can boast of the silence of a fan-less design. ASUS tried that early this year, but ended up shoving fans inside the Eee Box 1037. Now the company is taking another swipe at it with the E210. This Intel-powered fan-less mini PC tries to deliver just enough power to be a decent home server or basic desktop PC, without taking up too much space on the desk or the living room.

Asus to debut new thin and sexy Eee at Computex

Asus to debut new thin and sexy Eee at Computex

Asus was one of the big brands behind the netbook craze that swept the world starting a few years back. The small little netbooks were underpowered when compared to the notebooks on the market, but the low prices and portability made them very appealing to a number of buyers. Netbooks sold in droves to users that wanted portability and basic computing needs in a cheap package. Those netbooks, like the early Eee models, were rather chunky looking though.

ASUS Eee PC Sirocco to deliver hurricane speed?

It seems like ages since we've had a good ASUS netbook tease - the company has been so busy concentrating on its Eee Pad Slider and Transform, and Eee Slate EP121 tablets that new budget ultraportables have almost fallen at the wayside.

ASUS Eee PC 1215N gets reviewed: bargain 12-inches

ASUS Eee PC 1215N gets reviewed: bargain 12-inches

When is a netbook not really a netbook?  Why, when it gets a desktop version of Intel's Atom CPU, has notebook-style Optimus graphics, and - arguably - a larger display than 10.1-inches.  By those counts, ASUS should be calling their Eee PC 1215N a 12.1-inch ultraportable not a netbook, but then they might put the price up from $499 and, according to Laptop, then we'd be missing out on something of a bargain.

Atom N550 benchmarks suggest doubled performance over N450

Atom N550 benchmarks suggest doubled performance over N450

It seems ASUS were playing silly beggars at Computex this year, with their demo Eee PC 1015PN and 1015N netbooks both labelled as using Intel Atom N475 processors whereas actually they packed Intel's newer dual-core Atom N550 chips.  NotebookItalia spotted the discrepancy - the correct processors showed up in the system integration - and promptly ran some benchmarks to see quite how much of a boost the N550 brings over previous generation netbooks.  The good news is that the N550 bests not only the N450 but some Intel CULV chips.
