The Asustek PW201 does a purely logical thing, following Apple's lead and placing a 1.3- megapixel webcam right in the top/middle of the bezel surrounding its 20.1-inch LCD. The PW201's spec list isn't too shabby, either, with 1680x1050 resolution, 800:1 contrast ratio and 300 nits of brightness. It has a full complement of inputs including component, S-Video, composite, DVI-D and D-SUB, and it even has in-a-pinch audio facilities with a couple of 3-watt speakers built in along with a headphone jack.


Asus isn't saying when we'll see this baby or how much it will cost, but we're hoping the company's idea of placing a webcam front-and-center will set a trend.
