Reviews for the Asus Eee Top PC ET1602

Asus Eee Top PC ET1602 Review
Source: Hardware Central English
For the same $500 or so it will cost you take home an Eee Top, you can admittedly buy a low-end desktop and monitor equipped with a dual-core CPU, more RAM, a larger hard drive, and a DVD drive to boot. That PC will undoubtedly perform better than the Eee Top, but it will also be noisier and more power-hungry, take up a lot more space, and it won't include your niceties like a touch-screen or integrated Wi-Fi. Deciding between the Eee Top and $500 worth of full-size laptop is a tougher call, but the latter still won't give you the touch screen or the aesthetics that the Eee Top delivers. Like the netbooks from which it spawned, the Eee Top comes with its share of compromises, and isn't suitable as a primary PC. But if you need wireless Web connectivity and basic computing capability in a tight space -- a kitchen, a bedroom-and value cool looks and touch-screen convenience, the Eee Top PC ET 1602 should be on your shopping list.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on Mobile Intel 945GM chipset. It is a faster clocked version of the GMA 900 and supports no hardware T&L (Transform & Lightning) accelleration (which is required for some games).

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).


N270:

Power efficient, cheap and slow Netbook single core CPU. Because of the in-order execution, the performance per MHz is worse than Core Solo or Celeron M processors.

15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


4.3 kg: This laptop is heavy below average, compared with the average of notebooks. Therefore especially desktop replacements fit in this class of weight.


Asus: ASUSTeK Computer Incorporated, a Taiwanese multinational company, produces motherboards, graphics cards, optical drives, PDAs, computer monitors, notebook computers, servers, networking products, mobile phones, computer cases, computer components, and computer cooling systems. The company's 2007 revenues reached US$6.9 billion. ASUS also produces components for other manufacturers. The Eee PC initiated the netbook boom in 2008.
