Summary: You can set up the E2701 so that its display and HDMI input remain active even when the PC is shut down. Asus doesn’t offer a TV tuner with the E2701 in the North American market, which isn’t a big loss, but it doesn’t provide a remote control, either. Bottom line: The Asus E2701 is a great all-in-one computer with an exceptional price/performance ratio.
Pros: Gorgeous display, fast components, and an eSATA/USB 2.0 combo port.
Cons: Cheap, sloppy keyboard; no TV tuner option; no remote.
