Asus EeeKeyboard drops to €299

Written by


A bit less pointless now
Remember the Asus' EeeKeyboard? Yes, that stylish and embarrassingly overpriced all-integrated rig that is sure to bring back fond memories to any Spectrum, C64 or Amiga user.

Well, it launched last summer after several delays and needless to say it never took off, which probably had something to do with the €549 price tag. However, Asus has slashed the price by 45 percent to €299, making it quite a bit cheaper, but we're really not sure about the hardware.

It packs Intel's ancient Atom N270 and 1GB of memory. On the upside, it does have a 16GB SSD, HDMI and rather good connectivity, including Bluetooth, WiFi and three USB 2.0 ports. Also, it packs a 5-inch multitouch 800x480 screen.

Still, it's quite hard to recommend it, mainly due to the ageing N270, but look it was never meant to be a practical rig. But if you think of it as a piece of furniture or a nice vase, just something that will look interesting in your living room, we guess it still not that bad.

Maybe... But maybe nobody wanted to spend €500 on a screenless netbook regardless of the spec.

Another BIG loss to add to the next Q report from retardtel, summed to 1 billion loss, no big deal :D

And the most surprising thing it´s about the actual situation: What the hell is doing a decrepit Atom N270 when zacate ontario are alredy here, hahaha, i´m not gonna get reaped paying 300€ for that shit.

The EeeKeyboard (KEeeBoard) was always a trade show concept product. It should have never been released to consumers. What they should have done with it was turn it into some type of home automation control/Universal remote/PC Keyboard, so that it could perform multiple functions and be the main input device of a home entertainment system.

If it was an fusion , i see where it's going ...
As a home automation controller with the 5" touch screen , ( it might be in the wall , or just carry it around @ home lol . )
or even to ring the alarm you connected to your neighbour's house because you hate them .
