Asus teases with MacBook Air-esque Eee PC

Super skinny netbook inbound?

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Artist's impression or real photo, official or unofficial - it's hard to be sure. The NI pic doesn't look quite right to us, but it certainly matches what Asus has posted.

Guess we'll find out next week... ®
