With most eyes of the world focused on a certain gizmo that hit the market, ASUS quietly went about its business and released the EeeKeyboard PC. Admittedly, this revolutionary device’s launch didn’t make the headlines, but don’t let that fool you—ASUS could have a game-changer in its hands.

The EeeKeyboard PC proved to be an enigma, with Engadget’s Donald Melanson running a tongue-in-cheek post summing up all the EeeKeyboard pre-launch news in a paragraph made up entirely of links.

When it came down to comparing it with the latest gadgets out on the market, [z]en from Point Zero wonders why people would prefer to have just a screen when they can have a keyboard with more computing functionality.

Rachel King from ZD Net is keen on giving it a chance despite the hefty price tag of nearly US$600.

So far, the computing public seems to be divided into two camps when it comes to a home entertainment PC housed within a full-sized keyboard with a 5” touch screen.

With an Intel Atom N270 1.6GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, a 16GB or 32GB solid state drive, and ultra-wideband technology to turn any TV or monitor into a fully functioning PC, think of it as a netbook in a keyboard body.

It’s too early to tell how this will pan out. But we all know what happened the last time ASUS introduced the netbook back in 2007. So it is wise to not bet against the EeeKeyboard PC doing the exact same thing.
