Last week we got our first glimpse of the Asus Eee Box , an ultra low-cost desktop PC that should be hitting the market soon, and now this week we’re getting a look at an all-in-one computer that Asus is supposedly working on as well. When we say all-in-one, we mean that there is no separate CPU, it’s built right-in to the monitor. Think iMac. Take a look at what it’s expected to look like:
Nothing official has been stated about whether this is just a monitor or whether it’s the all-in-one computer that everybody is expecting it to be. LaptopMag points out that it looks as though it’s about 19 or 20 inches and even has a webcam centered at the top. There are also 4 USB ports on the back along with two Ethernet ports, three audio ports and 2 audio-outs. The fact that it has two Ethernet ports is enough to make you assume that it is an all-in-one computer. They say, “If it’s meant to serve as a monitor, it must also double as a docking station, because otherwise there’s no reason to have Ethernet and audio ports.” They also mentioned that it is rumored to have a built-in TV tuner, all for $500. If this turns out to be the case, there’s going to be a lot of people going crazy for it!
Do you think Asus is on the right track by making their Eee line of computers compact and affordable?
