Eee PC Top Hits Pre-Order

All-in-one PCs, Asus style.

Asus’s Eee Top was revealed a couple of months ago, under the guise of the Eee Monitor. It seems someone at Asus saw sense and realised that Monitor was not a good name for an all-in-one PC. That’s particularly noteworthy now, as the system is up for pre-order at a bunch of e-tailers.

Not only does that give us a taste of the system’s prospective price of £400, but it also it means we have the full specs, as follows:

  • 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU
  • 1GB RAM
  • 160GB hard drive
  • Operating System: Windows XP Home
  • 15.6in touch screen display
  • OS: Windows XP Home
  • 1.3MP webcam built-in
  • Two 4W speakers (hardly groundbreaking)
  • Gigabit Ethernet, six USB ports, SDHC card reader
  • Draft-N wireless

Black and white colour options are available, in case such choices are enough to warrant a purchase and the system carries a reasonably generous two year warranty.

At around twice the price of the Eee Box, Asus may have to do a bit of persuading people that a touch sensitive screen is worth the extra investment. A 15.6in screen isn’t exactly impressive, and for £200 there’s no shortage of great options.

Anyone taking bets on when MSI, Samsung, Toshiba et al follow suit with similar systems?
