Around Android circles Asus is known for its Transformer series of tablets. But in the computer world, one of their most notable accomplishments of recent years is the Eee PC line, which basically invented the netbook segment and (formerly) lent its name to everything from all-in-one computers to tablets. Appropriately, the PC machines are now capable of running Android 4.0, or at least the Eee PC X101 is. The capability comes from the Android x86 project
, which allows the open-source OS to run on hardware designed for desktop operating systems. The X101 is designed to run Intel and Nokia's Meego operating system, but is capable of running pretty much any x86-based OS.
