Asus EEE Top Desktop PC

I have had a look at 4 All In One computers over the last few days. All of which have cost around £1,000+ and have had a at lkeast a 20″ screen size. So it is not fair to compare the Asus EEE Top Desktop PC to these machines as it is a fraction of the price and only has a 15.6″ screen.

These type of machines are being marketed as Nettops, the PC equivalent of the netbooks which have grown in popularity in the last year and a half. Nettop is a good name for it as it distinquishes it from the more powerful All In One computers which I have spoke about the last few days though it would also be fitting to call it a Budget All In One computer, because essentially, that’s what it is.

 Asus EEE Top Desktop PC

The EEE Top currently sells for £399 in the UK. Powered by Windows XP (SP3, it has a 15.6″ screen, Intel Atom 1.6GHz processor, 160GB hard drive,drat N wireless, 6 USB ports (2 at front, 4 at the back), memory card reader, 1.3 megapixel webcam, microphone, keyboard and mouse.

One of the best features of the EEE Top is the screen, which is touchscreen. I don’t expect it to work as well as HPs Touchsmart All In One but I’m sure kids and internet novices would find this feature very useful.

Overview

As I mentioned at the start, you simply cannot compare this machine to the more expensive All In Ones I have looked at the last few days. For under 400 pounds you do get a lot for your money. If you only use the internet to browse the web, email and writing letters etc, then this machine could be a good option for you.

For everyone else, I think it would be a nice addition to the home as a secondary computer i.e. in the kitchen or living room. All in all, it seems like a good machine for £399. :)
