While many winners of CES 2008 have been announced, Think Computers makes a strong case that ASUS won that particular horse race.  The gallery of pictures that we have seen of ASUS' booth show off a lot of new products most of which seem very interesting.  The spread of new laptops is impressive, and the improvements to SplashTop have put them a length ahead.  There are also new motherboards, sound cards and even cell phones and GPS units to be seen.  We can only hope that the enginee

Asus had a large presence at CES this year, though they didn't have the booth size to handle it.  With all the press the Asus Eee PC has been getting, you'd have thought they'd splurge on fancy stands and booth babes!
