Lanner LEC-7020 nettop packs 3G & GPS

Lanner LEC-7020 nettop packs 3G & GPS

Just as netbooks eventually settled to a common spec, so nettops have proved uninspiring with their capabilities; that said, there's always room for something unusual, and so Lanner's new LEC-7020 certainly has appeal.  The company are positioning the compact PC as an embedded device, but with an Intel Atom N270 processor, GMA 950 graphics and up to 2GB of RAM it's really no different from other nettops we've seen.  As for that differentiator, the LEC-7020 has an integrated 3G modem with GPS.

Fujisoft Palro Atom-based hobby robot [Video]

Fujisoft Palro Atom-based hobby robot [Video]

Fujisoft's Palro isn't the first robot we've seen packing an Intel Atom nettop as a brain, but he's a little more handsome than Vstone's rather industrial-looking Robovie-PC.  Palro packs an Atom N270 1.6GHz processor, WiFi b/g/n and a 3-megapixel camera, but more interesting are the five microphones used for voice recognition.

ASUS Eee Box EB1501-B0367 1080p nettop gets Blu-ray

ASUS Eee Box EB1501-B0367 1080p nettop gets Blu-ray

ASUS' Eee Box EB1501 was already standing out as a potentially decent HTPC, and the company have added another feather in its metaphorical cap by apparently introducing a Blu-ray version.  Announced back in October 2009 with Intel's Atom 330 CPU, NVIDIA Ion graphics and a slot-loading DVD burner, the new Eee Box EB1501-Bo367 with Blu-ray is now showing up with several European online retailers.

ASUS Eee Keyboard (finally) coming February 2010?

ASUS Eee Keyboard (finally) coming February 2010?

ASUS' Eee Keyboard has been so long coming, we've reached another CES before it has arrived on the market.  First announced back at CES 2009, the last we heard about the touchscreen-nettop-in-a-keyboard was some nebulous statement from ASUS UK the underlying message of which was that they didn't have a clue when it would go on sale.  Happily things have firmed up since then, and ASUS are now apparently claiming that the Eee Keyboard will drop in February 2010.

NorhTec Gecko Surfboard: $99 Linux PC in a keyboard

NorhTec Gecko Surfboard: $99 Linux PC in a keyboard

The oft-delayed ASUS Eee Keyboard is a great concept - squeezing everything from a nettop into a QWERTY form-factor - but what if your computing ambitions are even more moderate?  NorhTec reckon they have the product for you in the shape of the Gecko Surfboard, outwardly a regular QWERTY keyboard but actually packed with a 1GHz x86 system-on-chip (SoC), VGA and composite video outputs, 10/100 ethernet and optional WiFi b/g or even 3G.  The idea is you can hook it up to your TV or a spare monitor and get online without the hassle, bulk or cost of a regular nettop or PC.

NVIDIA Ion 2 launch delayed at manufacturer request

NVIDIA Ion 2 launch delayed at manufacturer request

NVIDIA have officially confirmed that the next-gen "Ion 2" (not the final name) graphics chipset is in the works, but it won't be arriving quite as soon as many had hoped.  The company told Fudzilla that the Ion 2 won't see an official launch until later in Q1 2010, as opposed to the Q4 2009 unveil we'd expected; that's apparently because hardware manufacturers want to milk a few more sales out of first-gen Ion devices before the new chip arrives.
