Asus EeePC got better gets multi-touch screen

I’ve been waiting for this since last year and pretty excited about Netbooks with touchscreen coming out this 2009. Asus has just announce at CES their newest member of the EeePC family. A netbook that has a rotating screen (aka tablet) and a multi-touch screen.

It’s weighing in at only 2-pounds and 1-inch thick that 8.9-inch LED backlit touch panel sporting an Intel’s Z520 Atom processor instead of the N270. Optional TV-tuner and GPS. I hope they put in SSD drives on it and 3.5G connectivity!
