Computex 2010: ASUS R.O.G. CG8490, Eee Pad's, ARES, A10

ASUS is one of the dominant forces in the computer industry and today we were given a preview of what's to come from them this summer. Get a glimpse of their first foray into the world of boutique gaming PC's, extreme high-end graphics cards, and their high performance and thin and light Windows based portable tablets.

ASUS had a Computex kickoff event to showcase the new products they’ve developed for this year’s show. Jonney Shih, the Chairman of ASUSTek Computer Inc. was on hand to give us a presentation of their new products. One such product is from the Republic of Gamers line, the CG8490 Desktop. This complete gaming system comes packing some serious hardware in that giant case! The heart of the beast is the Intel Core i7 980X six core CPU. And since 3.33GHz is just not enough, ASUS will be pushing it up to a minimum of 4GHz but is hoping that the final spec is closer to 4.3GHz.

I'm interested in the EEE tablet, especially if its cheap.
