Asus Rolls Out Affordable Eee All-In-One PC
Asus has just rolled out its all new All-In-One (AIO) PCs. Named the Eee Top ET1611PUT, the 15.6″ AIO is based on Intel Atom architecture. Users can also opt for a larger 20″ model, called the Eee Top ET2011AUKB.
Interestingly enough, the computers are available with or without an operating system-making it convenient to load Linux, OS X, or any other operating system of your choice. The 15.6″ model puts out an unimpressive 1366 x 768 pixel resolution on a single-touch anti-glare screen.
Inside, users will find a 1.8GHz Intel Atom D425 processor, GMA 3150 integrated graphics, and 2GB of memory. The internal hard drive has 250GB of capacity and runs at a speed of 5,400 rotations per minute.
The AIO has a 2-in-1 car reader, 0.3MP webcam, gigabit ethernet, and has 802.11 b/g/n WiFi with five USB 2.0 ports. As you have guessed by now, this isn’t a high end All-In-One, and is priced around $550 US or 370 Euros.
The Eee brand has long been known to provide affordable computers for the entry level user. The Eee PC series originally started as a netbook and offered users a brand new netbook to surf the web or do light productivity for $200-$300.
That said, these All-In-Ones will be perfect to surf the web but will slow down when running more demanding apps like Photoshop or Illustrator. Also, don’t expect to get any gaming done on here besides some online 2D web games.
