Asus shows how to dilute a sub brand properly at the CeBIT 2009 with lining up all kinds of gadgets under the Eee brand.
Asus unveiled at the CeBIT 2009 already the hot Asus Eee 1008HA netbook, but the company puts also other gear besides netbooks under the Eee brand.
It is still understandable to brand a desktop PC Eee Box and the All-in-One PC Eee Top, but EeeNAS (no space between Eee and NAS!), Eee Videophone and Eee Stick are a bit too much for my taste.The Eee gear Asus exhibits at the CeBIT 2009 has been unveiled before.
Details about each Eee product can be found below.
