It unfortunately didn't make it to the show floor, but Asus used the run-up to CeBIT to announce its new ASmobile C90S barebones laptop, the first to boast a so-called D-door design allowing for more expansion options than is normally possible with a laptop. One of the few things on the laptop that's not upgradeable is its 15.4 widescreen display, which can be complemented with up to an E6800 Core 2 Duo processor, any standard MXM graphics card, up to 2GB of RAM, your choice of SATA hard drive and, apparently, an "HD DVD and Blu-Ray optical drive," although we're guessing that doesn't mean a combo drive. Rounding out the specs, the 6.8 pound C90S comes standard with a built-in 2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, WiFi, and a TV tuner, as well as a full line-up of ports including, most notably, HDMI. Pricing will obviously vary quite a bit depending on how you configure it, but there's word yet one what it'll cost you to get going, nor is there any indication of when it'll be available.
