Certain partners of Asustek Computer have started to take pre-orders on Asus Eee all-in-one desktop featuring touch-screen, which was discussed long ago, but which will only emerge on the market in the second half of November, 2008.

Asus Eee all-in-one desktop (model ETP1602-WT-X0010) is based on Intel Atom processor N270 (1.60GHz) and Intel 945 GSE core-logic with built-in graphics core. The novelty sports 1GB of DDR2 memory, 160GB hard disk drive, Gigabit Ethernet controller, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n controller, built-in audio, 1.3MP webcam and so on. The system is equipped with 15.6” touch-sensitive screen with 16:10 aspect ratio. Even though the Asus Eee all-in-one desktop has touch-sensitive screen, it still comes bundled with keyboard and mouse.

Yet another member of the Eee family is powered by Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition and also comes pre-loaded with StarOffice, Adobe Reader 8.0, Norton Internet Security (90 day trial version), Express Gate, Skype, Eee Memo, SoftStyles, Eee Cam & Eee Cinema software.

Asustek’s new incarnation of Eee will compete against all-in-one desktops, such as Apple iMac, Dell XPS One or Gateway One. Although the novelty is much less expensive compared to its rivals, its performance is dramatically lower since systems from other makers utilize much more powerful Intel Core 2 Duo microprocessors. As a result, the success of Asus Eee all-in-one desktop depends whether end-users will be satisfied with low-performance Intel Atom processors or not.

The UK-based Play online store offers its customers to pre-order the Asus Eee all-in-one desktop (model ETP1602-WT-X0010) for £399 ($694, €510). The store promises to start deliveries on the 20th November, 2008.
