Why you’ll love it: Asus takes the all-in-one concept literally with an entire computer packed into a wireless keyboard.

The Keyboard PC packs in an Intel Atom N270 1.6GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB or 32GB of solid-state storage, three USB ports, VGA output, wideband wireless HDMI, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.0 and an internal battery.

Why you’ll love it: The M1022 Booktop looks to the future with a base station that converts the netbook into a desktop machine. Just slap it into the base and fire up your monitor, and you’re surfing the Web like a desk jockey. It comes with your choice of an Intel N280 Atom 1.6GHz or 1.66GHz processor, a maximum of 2GB RAM, a 160GB hard drive, three USB ports, a four-in-one card reader (SD Card, MultiMediaCard, Memory Stick and Memory Stick Pro), the docking port, a 1.3-megapixel webcam, Wi-Fi, optional Wi-Max and a 92 percent full-size keyboard.

CrunchPad

Price: Around $300
Release date: Unknown
OS: Custom Linux build
Screen size: 12 inches
Weight: Unknown

Why you’ll love it: When TechCrunch recently got scooped on its own device, I knew it had to make this list. Powered by an Intel Atom chip set, the CrunchPad comes with a touch-screen and virtual keyboard, a camera for photos and video, speakers, a microphone and one USB port. Outsiders have not laid their hands on the CrunchPad yet, but this little tablet device could be a hot property for simplified Web surfing, e-mail, media streaming and video chat.
