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

Futurelooks
15 June 2009
  • Summary: Just as they did with the Eee PC, Asus is introducing something quite novel with the Eee Top. We don't see too many of these all-in-one computers on the Windows side of equation, especially at the sub-$500 price point that we find the Eee Top.
  • Pros: 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
  • Cons: 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

Asus Eee Top ET1602 review

Liliputing
21 April 2009
  • Summary: The Eee Top is an interesting machine. It looks like an iMac, but runs like a netbook — with a touchscreen display. I think it’s plenty powerful enough for day to day use if you spend most of your time on a computer using web browsers, editing office documents, making Skype calls, and other light...

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

14 April 2009
  • Excerpt: The Asus EeeTop ET1602 is a light-weight All-in-One desktop, so light that it could also be called a portable desktop. Yup, you heard that right. So light that it comes with a handle for you to move it to any where you want, as long as there’s space to place the unit.

  • Conclusion: The machine has plenty of USB ports for adding external drives and other peripherals—including a DVD drive , we suppose (there are four in the back, two on the side, and one in the keyboard).

  • Summary: Synopsis: The Eee Top ET1602 builds upon Asus' popular line of Eee-branded products by introducing an all-in-one desktop form factor, complete with a 15.6" touch screen. Like the Eee PC netbooks that preceded it, the Eee Top ET1602 is built around Intel's low-power Atom platform, with the 945 GSE...
  • Pros: All-In-One Design, Touch Screen, Sleek Exterior, Useful Eee Applications, Low Power

  • Excerpt: The Eee Top ET1602's modest performance brands it as a second or even third PC, but this space-saving nettop offers an easy-to-use interface and an integrated touch-screen display.
  • Pros: Built-in touch screen, Small form factor, Easy to use
  • Cons: Slow performance, Expensive for its class

ASUS Eee Top 1602

PC Magazine
16 February 2009
  • Conclusion: 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).
  • Pros: Compact all-in-one PC. It runs Windows. Nice styling. Touch screen.
  • Cons: 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!

Review: Asus ET1602 Eee Top

Wired
13 February 2009
  • Excerpt: 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. So, it was no surprise that the budget-minded maestros at Asus released the sensibly appointed Eee Top (or ET1602).
  • Pros: 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 throughput thrashings. Has an one-touch shutoff...
  • Cons: 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: a glimpse of computers to come?

HEXUS
12 February 2009
  • Conclusion: As much as we've tried to enjoy ASUS' Eee Top, we found its shortcomings to be disconcerting. At a cost of £400, its typically limited performance leaves a lot to be desired, and the lure of its shiny exterior and touchscreen niceties soon begins to fade.
