Asus Computer plans to launch Apple iMac rival

From InfoWorld: Asustek Computer plans to launch an all-in-one PC built into a monitor designed to rival Apple's iMac on Thursday at a news conference in Taipei, according to a company e-mail.

The Eee Top , apparently the new name for what Asus once called the Eee Monitor, will sport a slender 15.9-inch touchscreen, use Microsoft Windows XP, and has an 1.6GHz Intel Atom microprocessor inside.

The ET1603 is clearly designed to be a more expensive device. It boasts an ATI HD3450 graphics card and has a battery, apparently to make it easy to carry around. The device weighs 4.4-kilograms, according to Asustek.

The ET1602 does not include a specialized graphics card nor battery, but most of the rest of its specifications are the same as the other model, with 160G byte hard disk drive, 1GB of DRAM, wireless Internet capability via Wi-Fi 802.11n, a 1.3-megapixel Web cam, two 4-watt speakers and several choices of ports including USB and three audio ports.
