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!
The products did make quite the impression though; two models in particular stood out to me.

ASE Labs made the trip through the desert to make it to CES, and they've posted their pictures from Day 3. One of the most impressive is a 150" plasma TV from Panasonic, but they also peek at Soyo who have switched from motherboards to displays, with a little help from Honeywell. Take a peek at their other shots here.

Instead of getting all excited about a wafer at the Intel booth, look at this picture from the Sharp display. According to MAKE:Blog, monitors are made in a similar fashion to CPUs, with a substrate of panels all coated at the same time and then separated after. A two by four substrate of eight 57" displays is really impressive to see.

While the 8800 GT has been widely lauded for being an amazingly fast product for a very attractive price, complaints about the heat it creates as well as how loud the fan can spool up has spawned a 3rd party cooling market to address those needs. EVGA is now showing a dual slot cooling solution on the 8800 GT that should address this burgeoning market. They also up the core clock on the 8800 GT to a nice and even 700+ MHz to boot.

If CES has you going into gadget overload, with too many new things to see, the melange of PC and other electronics too much for you? Follow Think Computers over to the Digital Experience, an event that occurred Sunday, in the humble little venue called Caesar's Palace. The displays there are smaller and sparser, as the event focuses solely on the PC world. You can see Lenovo's new IdeaPad F11, some snazzy systems from Alienware as well as speakers, monitors , mice and more.

After stopping by the EVGA booth today, I came away very impressed with how the company is choosing to innovate rather than duplicate.

Intel is showing off their Skulltrail setups in both air cooled and water cooled configurations. The big news is that these systems are shown running at 4 GHz. Too bad Ryan didn't bring along his Kill-a-watt to see how much power they were sucking up.
Yes Virginia... there is a 1337 Case Modder. Would you like some rhinestones with that?
