$500.00 Released March, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Affordable price. Space saving and aesthetically pleasing all-in-one design. 15.6" touchscreen display with 720p capable resolution (1366 x 768px resolution).

The Cons:Slow single core Atom processor, 950 GMA graphics - only good for basic 2D programs, light multitasking. Comes with Windows XP. Touchscreen support is poor on XP, non-convertible limits its usability - poor ergonomics.

The Asus Eee Top ET1602C is an all-in-one PC similar in appearance to an Apple iMac, with similar functionality to an Apple iPhone. The Eee Top ET1602C features a 15.6-inch, single-point touch screen display that allows users to directly control their PC without the need for a mouse.

While the touchscreen is the primary method for controlling this computer, a keyboard, stylus and mouse are included as well. No DVD drive is included for installing software, but one still has the option of downloading software, or using one of the six USB 2.0 ports for loading applications, or even connecting an external disc drive. Other hardware additions include a webcam and multi-card reader for sharing multimedia. This 9.5 lb Eee Top machine is portable due to its built-in carrying handle. Users looking for a low-cost digital information hub for the home should find the Asus Eee Top ET1602C more than adequate.
