ASUS ExpressGate & SplashTop

Comments Off on ASUS ExpressGate & SplashTop

Perhaps two of the coolest new motherboard features in quite some time, shame it’s from Asus, but kudos on producing this.

I really cannot do it justice with my own review since I’m just a screaming fangirl when it comes to things like this so you can read the review on your own.

In a nutshell: Just another motherboard, except this once can fire up an embedded Linux environment with Firefox and Skype in 5 seconds. This is a godsent for quick computer access, troubleshooting and diagnostics, not to mention for homes that do not (or should not) have systems on 24/7. Price tag is $360, more than even a decent server mobo, but first mover always cashes in.
