Designed around the convertible design of tablet PCs, the Asus Eee PC T101MT-EU17 is the latest entry in touchscreen PCs. Looking like a typical netbook, the 10.1" LED display is attached at a single hinge that can rotate 180º, fold down on top of the keyboard, and transform into a tablet, providing a flat writing surface.

Docking stations used to be fairly niche accessories, matching a specific brand of computer and connecting via a proprietary port. Universal docking stations have changed this, and Toshiba's dynadock V is a fine example of a modern universal dock. The compact device connects to a Windows XP, Vista, or 7 computer system via a single USB connection.

A docking station is designed to allow you to connect your notebook computer to a slew of accessories via a single cable connection. With many users eschewing a desktop system in favor of a more versatile notebook system, docking stations have become more common and offer enhanced functionality when compared to older accessories.
