(PhysOrg.com) -- Asus has just revealed their 15.6-inch Eee Top touchscreen PC that is powered by an Intel Atom processor N270 (1.60GHz) and Intel 945 GSE core-logic with built-in graphics core. The system features a 160GB hard drive, 1GB of RAM, 4-in-1 card reader, integrated camera, Wi-Fi 802.11n controller and Windows XP Home operating system.
The Asus Eee Top comes in two versions with the ET1602 and the ET1603. Inside the Asus Eee Top ET1603 a discrete ATI Mobility Radeon HD3450 is responsible for more graphics power, as compared to the ET1602, which enables the system to run graphically-intensive 3D applications and games more fluidly. Even though the Asus Eee all-in-one desktop has touch-sensitive screen, it still comes bundled with keyboard and mouse.
Setting up the Eee Top is as easy as taking it out of the box and plugging it in. This system is also the perfect computer for beginners. It features an exclusive Easy Mode within Windows that makes commonly-used applications easily accessible.
With its sharp and vibrant widescreen (16:9) LCD, the Eee Top becomes the perfect Media Entertainment Center. Asus´s patient Splendid Video Intelligence Technology renders the video display with a vivid and clear image regardless of environmental lighting and SRS technology works in tandem with the Eee Top´s built-in high fidelity speakers to deliver crystal clear audio.
The Eee Top touchscreen PC is first to ship in Taiwan, Hong Kong and the UK. In 2009 Asus is also adding larger screen models with 20- and 22-inch Asus Eee Top PCs. There is no information yet as to when these PC´s will be available in the US.
