Asus is up to the innovation business in the PC marketplace – and it will be giving HP and nobody-else-so-far a run for the touchscreen marketplace. Its not fully multi-touch but at $499 an 1.6GHz Atom processor, 1GB of RAM, 160GB hard disk and Windows XP with Asus.
Seen at CES 2009 the Asus Eee TOP is gaining adherents even among the Gadget community.
But Asus is not alone, other Taiwanese vendors Shuttle and MSI have variations on this basic touchscreen capability with more horsepower (duo core near 2 GHz processors) and less (Vista as the OS). By the way if you are keeping score – 4 impressive touch screens by PC vendors, 0 on the Apple Mac.
