Asus Eee Top 1602: review of reviews

What's the verdict on the Asus' iMac killer?

PC Advisor rounds up reviews of the Asus Eee Top 1602. What's the verdict on Asustek's iMac killer?

Following the staggering success of its genre-defining, cut-price Eee PC laptop range, Taiwanese computer giant Asustek recently launched the Asus Eee Top.

The Eee Top is a desktop PC within a 15.6in screen. Like the Apple iMac, the Eee Top has no separate tower unit. Even better, the provided wireless keyboard slips into a slot on the back of the Eee Top, which has a touchscreen interface.

After putting the Asus Eee Top through its paces in the PC Advisor Test Centre, Reviews Editor Andrew Harrison was cautiously positive, awarding 3.5 stars, and saying: "This desktop PC is more like a laptop packed into a screen, yet with its touchscreen interface it is much more.

"This would make a good household computer for a young family, and thanks to its economical 27W power consumption, it won't even present any suprises on your next electric bill."
