Today ASuS and Intel launched WePC, with the idea of “Community Designed” PCs. It offers a strong range of laptops, from netbooks, to daily use laptops, to gaming laptops, with processors randing from Atom to Centrino 2 Extreme.
You can choose designs pitched by ASuS, Intel, ‘community members’, or make one yourself. I know, ‘customizing your hardware’ has been around for years on major sites such as Dell and Lenovo. But this offers a somewhat wider range and you can post your own customization for someone else to build on. It’s the old concept taken a step further.
Cheers to Intel and ASuS.
