The Asterisco Hub isn’t the most practical of concepts (it’s quite the space hog), but it works on two very important levels: 1) it looks cool; 2) it can be used as a ninja star on short notice.

Think of Gigabyte’s MID M528 as a mini-laptop: it has a 4GB SSD hard drive, 4.8″ touch panel LCD, webcam, full 3G and Wi-Fi. We like that it’s now available at almost half its preorder price.
