Asus announces Eee Top, a touchscreen all-in-one

Asus’ latest exploitation of the by now meaningless Eee brand: the Eee Top, a cheap, 15.6-inch all-in-one touchscreen, featuring six USB ports, a 4-in-1 card readers, 160GB of hard drive space and the ubiquitous 1.6GHz Intel Atom and 1GB of RAM. It also comes pre-installed with the Eee cinema, a home multimedia center program.

I actually like it quite a bit. It would make an excellent little computer for the kitchen counter: looking up recipes, playing music and watching the occasional video. There’s no price yet, but its Eee, which is synonymous with cheap…ish.

    Ya know, put a battery in this, and I’d buy it in a heartbeat! That’s all I want: a touchscreen tablet with a dock that can be easily picked up and used in any room of the house, or used with a wireless keyboard and mouse at my desk. Perfect. If it has a battery. :P

    According to the product page and rumors I’ve seen elsewhere, it does have a battery (“uninterrupted power supply”) in it for exactly that purpose.

    In-case UPS is a long overdue standard feature in desktops, especially AIOs. If it doesn’t explode and destroy reams of these, I’d watch for Apple to do it, too. (In a non-removable manner, of course.)
