Hardware

Every so often a new product comes along that fires up almost everyone who sees it.
Such products quickly gain a cult following among early adopters who try out an array of modifications, comparing notes and results on internet forums.

The latest product to earn this kind of cult status is the Asus Eee PC 4G, a mini laptop that stole the show at Computex 2007 and has since set numerous forums ablaze with countless tips, tricks and tweaks – and it’s not hard to see why.
