Friday, January 23, 2009: ASUS has launched the Eee Top ET1602, the all-in-one touch-screen computer that boasts the full functionality of a regular desktop PC. Equipped with 15.6” five-wired resistive touch panels, the new Eee Top ET1602 enables users to manage what they see onscreen by applying direct pressure with their fingertips.

The Eee Top ET1602 comes with a comprehensive suite of touch-optimised applications spanning productivity, entertainment and communications—enabling users to do virtually anything, easily.

Speaking on the occasion, Albert Tung, managing director, ASUS (India), commented, “With the launch of the Eee Top ET1602, ASUS has introduced its touch screen based technology in India, and we are very much optimistic about making this technology popular amongst our potential customers in India. In India, ASUS is planning to create a different niche in the PC market which will be catered to by launching different innovative and technologically advanced products from ASUS. Having complete faith on the innovative products that are churned out of the ASUS’ R&D laboratories; we aim to be amongst the leading PC vendors in India by the year 2012.”

“Once again, ASUS’ Eee family has come out with a very revolutionary product-Eee Top, a desktop PC with touch screen technology. Eee Top is an exclusive product and is targeted at children and elders who are yet to be introduced to computing devices. With its unique touch screen technology, Eee Top provides a comfortable platform for computing to the new age family,” said Vinay Shetty, country head, components business, ASUS (India).

Catering to users new to Windows, the Eee Top ET1602 features an exclusive Easy Mode within Windows that allows users to locate and access commonly-used applications easily within streamlined and readily-accessible menus.

Eee Memo, for example, enables users to write messages for their family members on desktop ‘stickies’ with their fingers. SoftStylus allows them to input text without requiring a physical keyboard—it recognises handwriting and also offers a virtual keyboard as an alternative. Surfing the Internet is also possible without a mouse, thanks to Opera Touch, a rich-featured Web browser enhanced for touchscreen use that supports drag-and-drop functions, widgets and ‘speed dialling’.

The Eee Top ET1602 touch-screen computer is a fully-capable entertainment centre. The 15.6-inch widescreen (16:10) LCD are sharp and vibrant, bolstered by Eee Splendid Video Intelligence Technology. Users will also enjoy high quality audio throughout—without the need for additional speakers—thanks to the integrated Hi-Fi speakers and SRS TruSurround HD technology.

Tying in all of the Eee Top ET1602 touch-screen computers’ multimedia capabilities is Eee Cinema, a full-featured multimedia centre that enhances the user’s enjoyment of photos, videos, music and movies. Offering a user interface that is akin to that found in consumer set-tops, Eee Cinema puts the ability to browse, select and play all of the user’s media at his or her fingertips.

The Eee Top ET1602 touch-screen computer carries a price tag of Rs 44,000 and comes with a two-year warranty.
