Asus has proven their meddle with their Eee Netbook, but now they want to get into PCs. But 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?

What You Need To Know

  • Asus made it easy to set up. Plug in power, mouse, and keyboard, and you're done
  • Even though 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
  • But is there anything that could be improved?
  • We would like to see it have more than 1 gig of RAM since it is a desktop PC
  • Things like the 160 GB hard drive, card reader, and Wi-Fi make this a really useful computer

Price

  • $600
