VIDEO: ASUS Eee Keyboard Unboxed

Although we recently reported that Amazon has the wireless ASUS Eee Keyboard up for pre-order at a meaty $599, apparently some outlets have already gotten their hands on the new netbook-in-a-keyboard device. Netbooknews felt the need to show the Internet that it has received one of the long-awaited devices, and has offered the sexy unboxing in the video below.

While you can virtually smell its newness once the lid flies open, we really don't get to see this thing in action. however notice that the touchpad already has fingerprints on its surface--apparently this device was unpacked prior to the video's big revea.

    I still like the idea of it, but i couldn't possibly justify that for 600$
  • Hellbound
    $600, no thanks. I'm sure I could find a cheaper way to put web media content on my TV.
  • kennyforgames
    I m not a mac fanboy. but 600 for this thing I rather a ipad.
  • grillz9909
    Looks like a mbp keyboard.
    Anyway, I think it would be kind of cool to play on, but for $600... no thanks.

    That thing looks completely worthless. $600!!! LOL. Would definitely get the iPad over this piece.

    umm, the ipad is worse than this... not that i am saying this is awesome but the ipad isn't close both are overpriced. at the same time though this does what the ipad cannot and everything the ipad can.

    Does that say Asus or Apple? The price tag is in the way.

    I'm something of a ASUS fan boy, but you'd be a sucker to buy one of these they're way over priced. An Acer AspireRevo 3610 has a faster processor, supports 1080p and has 6 USB ports for half the price. I velcro'd one too the back of my television and bought a Adesso wireless keyboard touchpad. Now I can lay back and surf.
