Eee Top all-in-one PC to include Radeon HD graphics

Remember those all-in-one Eee PCs we keep hearing about? Well, Asus has put two of them up on its website, one of which couples an Intel Atom processor with discrete AMD graphics.

According to the official Asus spec sheet, the Eee Top ET1603 has a 1.6GHz Atom N270 processor (that's the same one you'll find in Eee PC netbooks), an Intel 945GSE chipset, and an AMD Mobility Radeon HD 3450 discrete graphics module. Asus also talks about a built-in 15.6" touch-screen display, 1GB of RAM, a 160GB 5,400-RPM hard drive, and integrated 802.11n Wi-Fi, among other features.

Judging by the photo above, the Eee Top looks a bit like a tablet PC propped up on a transparent plastic frame. Asus seems to have taken design cues from Apple's iMac and new wireless keyboard, too.

The Eee Top ET1603 has a little brother, the ET1602, which has a similar feature package and design but no discrete graphics. We saw that system listed at a British online retailer last month. The £449.99 pre-order price works out to roughly $700 today, but DigiTimes reported in mid-October that Asus would start U.S. pricing at $450 for Eee Tops. Seeing as the head-less Eee Box B202 costs just under $300, that sounds quite plausible.
