Asus Eee Top ET1602
Released January, 2009
The Pros:Affordable price. Great for students and those on the go - affordable, small, self-contained and highly transportable. Good connectivity - Gigabit and wireless N.
The Cons:Not as powerful as an Eee Box. Uncertain future for the US market. A little kiddie looking compared to the MSI offering.

Due to the competitive pricing options and hardware benefits of similiar competitor models ASUS has found itself right at the bottom of the netbook PC market alongside MSi.
