Asus Eee Top PC ET2010 spec
The ET2010PNT and ET2010AGT models have an optical 20″ multi-touch screen, which Asus claims is far more sensitive than alternative screens available. It says this results in easier and more accurate input when working with the fingertips. The multi-touch screen lets users pinch, zoom or rotate images with just two fingers or scroll through text.
Inside the Eee Top PC ET2010 there’s 2GB of Ram (upgradeable to 4GB), a 500GB hard drive and DVD burner plus onboard wi-fi, webcam and microphone. The ET2010’s processor is a 1.66GHz Intel Atom dual core D510, and the graphics chip is an nVidia Ion2010.
The ET2010 has a 1-inch profile and is slim and lightweight compared with traditional desktop PCs. Asus says the model is incredibly hardwearing, with a scratch-resistant screen and a stand that can handle up to 4kg in push pressure without falling down. It also claims to have a power consumption almost as low as an energy saving light bulb.
