EEE TOP 1602


With its Eee Top 1602 all-in-one desktop ($600 as of February 12, 2009; available in early March), Asus carries the Eee name over from its popular netbook line to the desktop. And though you won't want to run Adobe Photoshop on an Eee Top (the machine...

Easy-to-use, touch-friendly interface. Compact, attractive design.

No optical drive. Some utilities are clunky.

If you're looking for a computer for the kitchen, for your kids, or perhaps for the technophobe in your life, the Eee Top may be just the ticket

Asus EeeTop PC ET1602


Review updated 02/01/10: The Eee Top ET1602 helped pioneer the low-cost, touchscreen all-in-one PC. It's a sleek little 15.6-inch unit, with a user-friendly touch interface, but it faces stiff competition from newer rivals with larger screens at a...

Compact, attractive design ; Easy-to-use, touch-friendly interface

Some utilities are clunky ; No optical drive

The ET1602 was among the first low-cost touchscreen all-in-ones, but it now feels overpriced compared to newer competition.

Asus Eee Top ET1602


The Asus Eee Top ET1602 is already on-sale overseas, and Asus says the system will make its American retail debut on March 9. When it does launch in the U.S., for $599 you'll get the Eee Top with its 15.6-inch, 1,366x768 LCD, a wired mouse and...

Most affordable all-in-one PC on the market; semiportable and easy to set up, thanks to its small size and self-contained design; boasts a touch interface with a few useful apps.

Touch software only semiuseful; decent performance for an Atom system, but horrid compared with similarly priced laptops and desktops.

Thanks to its price, size, touch screen, and semiportability, the Asus Eee Top ET1602 presents a lot of usage options. Put it in the kitchen, den, or even a hallway, and it can serve as an easy information hub for your family. Just don't put it on a...

Review: Asus ET1602 Eee Top


All-in-one computers are yesteryear's gas guzzling SUVs. Sure, they're stylish and full-featured. But they're also ridiculously extravagant for everyday tasks. Asus ET1602 Eee Top 7/10...

Finally, an all-in-one for the Top Ramen set. Quick and responsive touch interface. Sports 1/8-inch audio jacks for surround speakers. Compact design has integrated storage for both keyboard and stylus. Integrated 802.11n and gigabit ethernet ensure...

Underpowered for heavy web video. A wired keyboard and mouse — on an all-in-one? Heats up after extended poke and prod sessions. Anemic 160-GB hard drive. Even a cheapy, noisy optical drive would’ve been nice. No battery means no mobile computing

ASUS Eee Top ET1602 Touchscreen Nettop Review


At first glance, ASUS' Eee Top ET1602 is the epitome of a niche product. Packing nettop-spec hardware in an all-in-one form factor, with a touchscreen and general design that seem to have stopped by HP's TouchSmart and the Apple iMac along the way,...

ASUS Eee Top 1602


The Eee Top has both Ethernet and wirelesss Wi-Fi networking built in, just like a netbook or more powerful notebook. Connecting the nettop is therefore as easy as hooking up to your Ethernet wired router with a Cat V cable or via 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi....

Compact all-in-one PC. It runs Windows. Nice styling. Touch screen

Only 1GB of RAM. Smallish mouse lacks back button. Weak 3D graphics. Can't run most of our benchmark tests. Screen is single-touch only. No Internet security software included ; Watch the ASUS Eee Top 1602

The ASUS Eee Top 1602 is the first truly integrated all-in-one nettop. The Eee Top may create a new category—think of it as the new Internet terminal that replaces your desktop (which is what WebTV or Audrey tried to do).

ASUS EeeTop PC ET1602 (All-In-One) Desktop Review


The EeeTop PC ET1602 is an All-in-One Touch-screen enabled light-weight desktop from ASUS.

The EeeTop is a very handy All-in-One, much thanks to the small foot-print and portable nature. While it is rather low in spec and could fail to satisfy the market who is in demand of higher processing capability, I deem the unit sufficient for the...

Asus Eee Top ET1602 1B All-in-One PC


Asus can largely be credited for making the netbook so incredibly popular in the first place. Even if you think that netbooks are already obsolete, there is still something to ...

Easy Mode is very finger-friendly ; Chicklet-style keyboard ; Simple all-in-one lifestyle PC solution ; Adequate performance, including ability to use Ustream ; Overall nice design and build quality ; Great value at around $499

Poor resolution display makes for poor video ; Eee add-ons, like Eee Bar and Easy Mode, feel like bloatware ; Only an Intel Atom N270 ; Cannot turn off blue underglow light ; Keyboard lacks numeric keypad

The point of the Asus Eee Top, just like the iMac for the Apple crowd, is that you are provided with a truly complete all-in-one computer right out of the box. In this way, you don't need to head out and buy any additional accessories or cables to get...
