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.

  1. I’ll just get an MSI wind or Lenovo S10 with that price range…

    Exactly, when Asus execs were asked about the prices, they practically responded by pointing to the other cheaper models. In a sense, the S101 are for those with discerning taste (but that’s just my interpretation).

    What are you talking about, not too bad pricing for a 15-inch touchscreen laptop and then there’s the Swarovski crystals.

    what’s the music playing the background?

  5. yuga says:

    @BrianB – the Asus Eee PC S101 is a 10.2″ netbook. The Asus Eee Top ET16 is an Atom-powered desktop PC. Song is Shake It by Metro Station.

    A couple more and I could get a decent core 2 duo desktop pc already

    Asus Eee Top ET1603 is more attractive, because of its touch screen feature. If that thing could support windows 7, that will be great.

    LOL @ Swarovski crystals. My carebear has Swarovski crystals in its eyes LOL.

    The demo is cute. I wonder what happened to the microsoft surface. I thought that would be the epitome of what touchscreens should be. I’ve never heard about it again.

    The HP touch screens are also pretty cool, but of course, they’re 2x more expensive.

  9. i think the proce for their new model is quite fair for the quality and durability of the product. There must be a reason why the price is that high. There may be some specifications that needs to be explained.

    I wish somebody will invent a multitouch tablet pc, like the iphone :)

  12. ahh and the EEE crowding continues.
    I’m already quite happy with my EEE Desktop PC though ^_^

    bah they should stuff the touch screen on the eeepc, it doesnt cost much

  14. This looks promising. A lot of solutions can be developed for this platform, product info kiosk, registration kiosk and other interactive solutions delivery applications.

    I’ll wait for it to go down to the 20 to 30k range :)

    I’have been using for a few months now, the LCD is of higher resolution then normal. It is impressive hybrid and cannot be compared to a desktop PC. There is no ‘noise’ of whatsoever. It is ‘space saving’ on your desktop, has 4 usb 2.0 behind, 2 usb on the left edge, and a cool ‘usb’ as well under the ‘keyboard ‘. It is indeed a class of its own.

  16. Hi! I just wanted to ask if yoou ever have any trouble with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of
    hard work due to no back up. Do yoou have any methods to prevent hackers?
