ASUS introduced some server products, along with their EEE TOP, EEE Box and EEE PC range of products at Italiannies, The Gardens.
The server products focus on providing reliable and environmentally more friendly servers while the EEE products focus on lifestyle.
Here’s a brief highlight of the event.
The people at ASUS made it as if the products were part of the menu. 🙂 Ready to order? Anyone?
The event was straight-forward, a presentation of ASUS’ server and EEE range of products.
This was followed by a buffet session (Seriously, I think almost everyone was waiting for the moment.) Awesome meal it was.
Strange as it seems, doesn’t this article remind you of buurps.com? 🙂

I shall not bore you with the specifications. And just to share, 1U isn’t referring to 1-Utama or anything related to that Shopping Mall! 😛
Basically 1U means 1 Rack Unit, a common way to knowing how much server rack space would an item take. So a server that occupies 2 rack unit would be 2U. Here’s how a 1U unit (RS100-E5/PI2) look like,
So yeah, who says event coverage articles can’t be informative? 🙂 By the way, such servers are like the ones that host your websites – may it be a blog, forum, online shopping portal, they all reside on machines as such. 😀 Hey, who knows, if my site grows really big I’ll probably add a few of those into my shopping list!
“EEE” is Not Necessarily an Expression of Feeling Grossed
*Till now I still can’t understand why ASUS named the Netbook range of goods with the term “PC” which I personally think the name EEEBook sounds better. The other products that function like a PC on the other hand are named with the term “TOP” and “BOX”. 😛
The newcomer in the EEE would be the EEE Top, a touch-screen capable mobile PC. Details available at ASUS website.
