I'm not endorsing this product or concept for writers, but I can't help but admire ingenuity and technology.  You've heard of computers inside monitors and even inside automobile dashboards, however Asus has built a computer around a keyboard.  The Asus Eee Keyboard is actually a netbook built inside a full size keyboard.

Running the Intel Atom N270 processor, this unique hardware offers the following specs:

  • 1 GB Ram
  • 16 GB SSD
  • WLAN 802.11 b/g/n
  • Bluetooth
  • 800 x 480 multi-touch display
  • HDMI out from keyboard, UWB reciever, VGA out
  • 3 USB ports

 

 

The Asus Eee Keyboard is "almost" available at Amazon and you can view a video of the device on YouTube.

What does the Eee Keyboard mean for writers?  LOL, not much.  I for one would not want to peck out a 120 page script or 500 page manuscript on a 5" LED screen.  However, this blog is all about – technology and writing and everything in between – because it's important for writers to be aware of the ever evolving technological landscape.  I do, however, see the benefits as it relates to someone who is focused on a specific task like accepting or rejecting hundreds of blog comments or someone who figuratively lives on Facebook.  Sure, you can use a regular laptop or desktop to accomplish these tasks, but what would be the fun in that?
