Asus has proven its mettle with its Eee Netbook. But it now they want to get into PCs. How does the extremely economically priced $600 desktop with a 15" touch screen, built in Wi-Fi, and the Intel Atom processor stack up to our tests?
Look below the cut for the written review from Attack of the Show.
What You Need To Know
- Asus made it easy to set up. Plug in the power, mouse, and keyboard and you're done
- Although the screen is small, it's sensitive and accurate enough to get the job done. It's not perfect, but your finger or the included stylus both work well
- There's also handwriting recognition and a virtual keyboard which are both helpful
- Asus also has an interface called "easy mode" that makes your more frequently used applications one-click accessible
- Overall, it's a good touch experience
- It's running Windows XP rather than Vista
- It has the Intel Atom processor, which we've seen perform well in most every net-book
- We would like to see it have more than 1 gig of RAM since it is a desktop PC
- The 160 GB hard drive, card reader, and Wi-Fi make this a really useful computer
