CeBIT 2009: With a five inch 800 x 480 touch pad to the right, a built in N270 Atom with 16-32GB SSD, 802.11n wireless, Ethernet, VGA and HDMI into something no fatter than a normal keyboard, maybe the desktop PC is a thing of the past.

All this lacks is some decent graphics from Nvidia's GeForce 9400M, but that’s another story entirely.

The brushed aluminium keyboard looks fantastic and we’ll be sure to get one in-house to have a play. The battery inside means it’s entirely portable but the Asus rep could only elude to a rough battery life after I took a wild stab in the dark at three hours.

There’s not really much more to say other than it’s an Atom shoehorned into a keyboard! At the end of the day, how many more Atom based Eee products do we really need? We like the idea but it’s no different than a laptop without a proper display – at least this gives freedom of choice what display to us and a full size keyboard (bar number pad) to type in.

Whatever will Asus Eee-ify next? Anyone for a bit of Eee-bingo? Let us know your thoughts in the forums.
