Asus SeaShell is chic and cheerful

Netbooks have built their reputation on being cheap and cheerful, leaving the sleeker and more slimline to battle it out at higher price points. But Asus is looking to change all that with the SeaShell. It measures just 2.5cm at its thickest point, but still squeezes a 10.1in screen and almost full-sized keyboard beneath its svelte shell. Underneath the glossy finish lies the true guts of a netbook, packing an Intel Atom processor, 1GB RAM, 160GB hard drive with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

WOW support makes gadgets even cooler

As if a dualscreen touch laptop from Intel and Asus wasn’t enough, the boys from Destructoid have imagined playing World of Warcraft on its fully customizable screens. Noting that a dual touchscreen laptop is just a Nintendo DS, but bigger, they’ve put together a useful list of features. Things like panoramic views by removing the onscreen keyboard, and increased macro support with user created widgets. Sounds good to us. If you’re gaming on a PC, how many buttons do you really need, anyway?

Asus Rampage II GENE motherboard is small but powerful

We don’t usually delve deep into the guts of PC hardware, however this motherboard deserves a special mention. New from Asus, the Rampage II GENE motherboard is only 24x24cm, but has room for three (yes, three) graphic cards. It’s CrossFireX and SLI compatible, so you’ll make full use of the triple GPUs, and comes with steller on-board audio in the form of X-Fi technology. Great if you want to build yourself a mini gaming rig, but we can’t wait to start seeing media center PCs with enough juice to run Crysis.

Hot on the heels of the latest Lambo launch, Asus have rolled out the VX5 range. Styled in similiar fashion to every other Asus Lamborghini (sleek bonnet with trademark leather bits on the keyboard) it’s got some serious speed under the hood. Powered by an Intel Core 2 Quad processor and GeForce  GT 130M graphics with 1GB of dedicated DDR3 RAM, this rig has the world’s first 1TB solid state drive. There’s no word on when it’ll be driving to these shores, or its price, but you can check out the official release from Asus here.
