Back in January, Asustek announced plans to widen its Eee PC brand to include desktops, including all-in-ones. The first of these all-in-ones has now surfaced for pre-order in the UK at Play.com. I hope that it will have a better name than the currently listed Asus Eee All-In-One-Touch Screen PC ETP1602-WT-X0010. Originally, Asustek had introduced it as the E-Monitor (not great but better).
The first model will be powered by a 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor with Intel 945GSE chipset and Windows XP Home. It will come with a 15.6-inch touchscreen display, a 160GB hard drive, 1GB RAM, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, a 1.3MP webcam, 6 USB ports, a 4-in-1 card reader and two 4W speakers with SRS. It will also be available in black. There is no mention in the specs of a built-in TV tuner, something Asustek had announced back at the beginning of the year. Maybe a future model?
The ASUS Eee All-in-one PC will sell for £399.99 (just under USD$700) and is expected to start shipping from Play.com in late November.
