Watch Out for the Asus Eee Keyboard in June
 
The Asus Eee Keyboard is a veritable netbookAfter showing up at various tradeshows and causing waves all around, the Asus Eee Keyboard is finally set to be out this June; or at least this is what a report by Engadget Chinese claims.
 
You might be thinking – what is so special about a keyboard? But this is no ordinary keyboard. If the description from Asus is to be believed, it is “a fully functional PC”. In other words, it is a full netbook built into a keyboard.
 
The specifications as revealed by Asus include a 1.6GHz Atom processor, 1GB DDR2 RAM, choice between 16GB or 32GB SSD, Wi-Fi b/g/n, and Bluetooth. On the ports side, the keyboard reportedly has HDMI, three USB ports, VGA, and audio I/O. Additionally, the keyboard also boasts of a 5in touch panel and wireless HDMI out, features which make it stand out.
 
The touchscreen doubles as a multi-function multimedia remote, browser, media player and calculator. Weighing an amazingly light 900g, the wired HDMI version is expected to be priced around $400, while the wireless HDMI model might cost around $600.
 
Impressive specifications for a keyboard, but still to be backed by proven performance; if you find it interesting, just wait for June and you might have one in your hands.

Isn't that article meant to be more on the news side, instead of the reviews...?

Pleas ignore this if I am totally wrong.

Good to see,
personally i hope this goes well for all concerned as the PA120.3, is as stated an iconic piece of kit.

Wouldn't part with mine.

All the changes seem to be for the best. Removing the bleed screw is a good idea.

With the fan spacing, it will increase the rads compatability, but also reduce the area of the core, which will only be detrimental to the performance of the rad.

What you guys think?

Good point and there are quite a few cases where fan spacing doesn't matter too (TJ-07, various Lian Li). But TC is just one manufacturer amongst quite a few others (Black Ice, XSPC. Feser, Swiftech...) which all use 15mm. It stands to reason that case compatibility and accessories like grills will never be as widespread for a less popular fan spacing. It makes sense to jump on the 15mm band wagon.

The bleed screw on my PA120.2 has had a slow leak on occasions but I've spotted it easily while leak testing and fixed it. It's a shame this will be going as I've found it quite useful for draining when changing coolant without having to disconnect/remove the rad. But if it means they are easier to make and cheaper as a result, I won't be complaining! I think it's good news.
