Asus S-Presso

We weren't just talking about barebones small-form-factor media PCs the other day? Oh yeah, we posted something about AOpen's XC Cube AV, but Asus, a company you might actually have heard of, is getting into the game, too. Their first entry is the S-presso SI-P111, which can run pretty much whatever media center software you want to put on there,  and has a 7-in-1 memory card reader and an instant-on function so you can listen to music and watch TV or a DVD without having to boot up. Also does something totally smart and puts a touchscreen control panel on the front so you can skip tracks on a CD or change channels or whatever without having to deal with a keyboard or finding the remote.

Bluetooth finally catching on. Again.
