Asus unveils expensive Eee Top, S101
Asus yesterday unveiled their flagship products in the Eee PC series — a 15.6″ All-in-One Touchscreen Desktop PC (Eee Top ET16) and the Eee PC S101 — both of which caters to the high-end segment of the Eee PC market.
The Eee PC S101 was announced in October 2008 and took 4 months to get to the Philippines, primarily because of the price tag of Php34,800+.
The S101 is basically similar to the Eee PC 1000H but caters more to the fashion-conscious crowd. Storage is in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB SSD, along with a 2.0MP webcam, Bluetooth and WiFi 802.11n. It still runs the Intel Atom N270 1.6GHz with 1GB DDR2 RAM. The 10.2″ netbook was designed to attract a more high-end market so Asus added a couple of Swarovski crystals in it.
The Asus Eee Top ET1603 is a 15.6″ touchscreen desktop running an Intel Atom CPU with 1GB of RAM and 160GB HDD with built-in WiFi. There’s an option to run it with on-board graphics or a discrete card (ATI Mobility Radeon HD3450). See video demo below:
The Eee Top is not easy on the pocket as well — suggested retail price is Php32,800.
