One of the future releases Asus showed at CES last week was an interesting hybrid piece of hardware that users could set up as a miniature desktop PC, a NAS device, or even as a wireless router or access point. The D200 will ship with an Intel Atom N270 processor, 1GB of RAM, a pair of 1TB hard drives, a built-in 802.11n router, and a slot-loading DVD burner. It also comes with a 3.5-inch touchscreen that you can use to interface with the unit, though this feature wasn't operational on the D200 displayed on the show floor. Connectivity includes four USB ports, a DVI port, and 6-channel high-def audio output. The drives can be set up in RAID Level 0 or Level 1 configurations, and it runs Linux at least for its NAS functions.

According to the Asus rep we've spoke to recently, the company hasn't determined a price for the D200, but "availability will be probably in a few months."
