Is that an RJ11?
WTF is that for? I know what it's for I just want to know what it's doing on there...

Unless it's for an optional telephone attachment, so you can use the Thing as an IPphone terminal.

My guess is it's nothing more exciting than a modem connection. I guess some people still use dial-up, for some strange reason only known to them.

They can't find the broadband train. Too busy waiting for google to load, y'see.

I agree with the Fisher Price sentiment.. Seriously, 'My first computer' is being screamed by that, er, thing.

Yeah, good thinking, just a PC for general web browsing or watching videos/listening to music.

A touch screen would make it perfect for this though..

Since some smart-ass shoe-horned a touch screen into the laptop, I'd be very surprised if one wasn't shoe-horned in here either by Asus or a third party.

Are you man or a mouse?!? If you don't like the look, mod it!

Seriously, it's functional and cheap enough to mod to within an inch of its life. You could put it in a nice oak picture frame. You could mount it behind a one-way mirror. You could drop it in a coffee table. You could build one in the bottom of a breakfast tray: have breakfast in bed and surf the net. The possibilities are endless.

I'm lazy I have one mod a month in me >.>

I'd be more interested if it gave me multi-touch control for RTS games, though.

Unless it's for an optional telephone attachment, so you can use the Thing as an IPphone terminal.
there are many places where you can't braodband (unless you want to pay out the nose)

my parents for instance, have dial up, becaseu they live far enough out in the boonies, that it would cost $1200 just to get a cable line run out there.....and satellite is just crazy expensive, for how little they use the internet.

Asus is not trying to sell this to hardcore gamers, or even thinking it could be fast or powerful.
it is cheap, simple, and inexpensive. perfect for retired, fixed income people, or casual web surfers. people that it would be a waste to spend the money on even DSL.

you don't have to use the dial-up, but it is nice to have the option (i mean really, it probably added...what? a buck to the total price?)

this is an awesome idea, the only other small form factor( this small that is) is only in the mac flavor and Im sure this would be powerful enough for the people who will buy it. Would be great for airports etc who currently use lots of lcd's replace them with this and you could do alot more. It is kinda ugly though.... but so are most of its competition

Looks like a good idea to me, I know Sony do something similar but they're pretty bulky things, this one looks like it could be quite useful.

If it's anything like the eeePC notebooks the RJ11 port is non-functional, the modem chip isn't even installed.

I installed, more soldering than installing, one onto my eeePC to allow voip (it's a Conexant 56K RD02-D110 if anyone is interested).

If they made a touchscreen model it would be perfect for kitchens and such, for music, media, ingredients and such.
