All-in-one Eee Top listed at Amazon for $600


— 1:42 PM on March 4, 2009

If you live in the U.S., you should be able to pre-order one of Asus' new all-in-one Eee desktops right now. Amazon has put up a listing for a 15.6" Eee Top model priced at $599.99, although it says the item "has not yet been released" and neglects to mention an availability date.

The Eee Top ET1602 has a built-in 15.6" touch-screen display, a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 processor, 1GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive, 802.11n Wi-Fi, a 1.3-megapixel camera, and a bundled keyboard and mouse. The system comes with Windows XP pre-loaded, so you can pretty much think of it as a glorified nettop. $600 isn't necessarily cheap for that kind of hardware, especially when you can grab a head-less Eee Box B202 and a separate 19" wide-screen display for just under $400 before shipping. However, $600 is also exactly half the price of Apple's cheapest iMac, so Asus may still conquer some all-in-one PC aficionados.

Speaking of Asus nettops, Reg Hardware reports that the Eee Box B206 is now available in the United Kingdom for £310 ($437). Asus unveiled that system last December, promising typical Eee Box specifications—an Atom N270, 160GB hard drive, and 802.11n Wi-Fi—but with an AMD Radeon HD 3400 instead of the sluggish Intel integrated graphics.
