From Asus, a Netbook in a keyboard

This may be the first time a Netbook has been cramped into a keyboard meant to replace a desktop.

We've seen Netbook components used in small desktops. Heck, we've even come across desktop-grade performance in mini-laptops. But this may be the first time a Netbook has been cramped into a keyboard meant to replace a desktop.

Details on the exact specifications of the product are vague, but the Eee PC Keyboard is a full-size input device that is likely based on the Atom chipset. Though it has a small 5-inch touch screen on the right, we suspect its role is more of a secondary display as this system is meant to be hooked up to external screens via the wireless HDMI or VGA port.

We do not know when, or if, this prototype will hit the market, but if it maintains its sleek profile, it will give other small-form-factor PCs a serious run for their money.
