ASUS’ Eee Top is an all-in-one PC sporting a touch-enabled 15.6″ TFT LCD. The LCD features a pixel format of 1366 x 768, giving it an aspect ratio of 16:9. The 1.6GHz Intel Atom powers the Top and that may make a tad slow if you want to do more than check email, surf the net and IM. Don’t expect to be watching flicker-free 720p HD on the Top as it will probably overwhelm the GPU (Intel GMA 950) and the CPU. ASUS did a decent job with the design–it is fairly clean with only the required buttons on the front. I do wish ASUS would redesign the logo to make it just a tad bit more upscale. Unboxing video after the jump.

The touch capability, a resistive type, allows you to use your finger or a stylus but only one at a time–no multitouching here. As you can see from the specifications above, the OS is Windows XP Home. The Tablet PC version would have been a better choice in my opinion. The news today is that the ASUS Eee Top is available for pre-order on Amazon for US$599.
