Asus teases with MacBook Air-esque Eee PC

Super skinny netbook inbound?

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Asus looks set to take the fight to Apple's 11in MacBook Air with an ultra-skinny Eee PC netbook, due to be announced next week at the Computex show in Taipei.

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... ®
