Intel/ASUS 'community' PC

Hardware makers Intel and ASUS have announced a new project, which the two companies say is designed to foster a "community-designed" PC. Through the creation of a website called WePC, the corporations say they hope to gather suggestions for the ideal qualities of a new computer, to be produced at an unspecified point in the future. Some participants are expected to be awarded prizes, but neither the prizes nor their criteria have been formalized.

The WePC site has meanwhile been divided into three categories, namely netbooks, notebooks and gaming (high-end) notebooks. People are able to vote on ideas presented by others, and are being encouraged to actively discuss options. End products will of course be built by ASUS, and restricted to using Intel CPUs, specifically Atom, Centrino 2 or Centrino 2 Extreme processors.
