Ever since the release of Windows 8 in late 2008, we’ve seen a number of notebooks capable of transforming into tablets and back at the drop of a hat. Taiwanese PC vendor Asustek, which has to its credit such ambitious devices as the dual-screen Taichi 21 and the three-in-one Transformer Book Trio, is getting ready to introduce two Lenovo Yoga-like laptops with 360º-adjustable touch screen panels.
At its special “In Search of Incredible” Windows 8 event in New York, Asus on Tuesday officially launched its Windows 8 lineup. To no one’s surprise, the Taiwanese company’s Windows 8 product lineup is an assortment of mostly touch-enabled offerings — everything from the ARM-based VivoTab RT to the 23-inch ASUS ET2300 all-in-one PC.
A couple of years back, British cosmologist Stephen Hawking caused quite a stir around the globe when he advised mankind against contacting aliens, for it could lead to a highly advanced alien species paying us a rather hostile visit. In case his fears aren’t entirely unwarranted as some contend, it might already be too late for us to prevent them from contacting us. As it turns out, our planet is surrounded by an ever-expanding radio emission bubble over 100 light-years in diameter. While the possibility of an alien invasion has been probed umpteen times in science fiction, its impact on product warranties has been entirely overlooked. Hit the jump for more.
Asus is already an ultrabook veteran, having been the first company to unveil an ultrabook. But at the recently concluded Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, where we saw dozens of new ultrabook models from almost all other major vendors, Asus seemed content with merely announcing two new color options for its existing Zenbook lineup of ultrabooks. That said, the company didn’t announce any new notebook models either. Now that CES is well behind us,though, the company seems to have found the time to launch a new enterprise laptop, the B23E.
Android has only been around for less than three years. In this time, the Linux-based operating system has quite literally gone places, appearing on a wide gamut of devices, from smartphones to e-readers. But it’s difficult to predict its next destination. Digitimes, however, has far too many industry sources for it to refrain from speculating. According to the site, Asus plans to build an Android notebook. Hit the jump for more.
If last week it was Toshiba and MSI, this week it’s AsusTek’s turn to bolster its gaming notebook lineup. The Core i7-powered Asus G74SX is all set to join the Taiwanese vendor’s G Series of gaming notebooks. Two SKUs of the G74 are now available for pre-order in the States via ExcaliberPC. Specs after the jump.
Asus has now begun shipping its 10.1-inch Asus Eee PC 1015PX netbook to the United States. Built around the 1.6GHz dual-core Atom N570 processor that Intel launched a couple of months back, the dual-booting 1015PX is available in two variants and four colors. Hit the jump for detailed specs and price.
The iPad-spawned media tablet category might be cannibalizing netbook sales, but Taiwan’s Asus, which launched the netbook category in 2007 with the Eee PC 701 and is one of the companies worst affected by this sales cannibalization, isn’t ready to abandon the category just yet. If a new Digitimes report is to be believed, Asustek will soon launch a sub-$250 netbook in cooperation with Intel in a bid to resurrect what has to be its favorite category of PCs.
