The ASUS Eee Top (with the second word pronounced /ˈ/) is a touch screen all-in-one desktop computer designed by ASUS and released in November 2008. Its motherboard employs Splashtop technology called "ExpressGate" by Asus.[1]

There are four models in this series, the ET1602, ET1603, ET2002 and ET2203d.

The ET 1602 and 1603 models feature a 1.6 GHz Intel Atom processor, wide-screen (16:9) 15.6" display, 1 GB of DDR2 RAM, 160 GB SATA HDD, 802.11b/g/draft-n Wi-Fi, speakers, SD card reader and a 1.3MP webcam with Windows XP Home modified with Asus' big-icon Easy Mode.

The difference between the models is in the graphics cards. The 1602 has integrated graphics chipset, but the 1603 includes a more powerful ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3450.

In August 2009, two more models were introduced, the ET2002 and ET2203. The ET2002 is the first all-in-one to use the Nvidia Ion platform with the Atom 330 and nVidia GeForce 9400 IGP. The ET2203 includes a Blu-ray player, a Core 2 Duo T6600 processor and an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570 graphics card. These models can also be used as standalone monitors with the ability to connect an HDMI-equipped gaming console such as the PS3 or Xbox 360, and other HDMI-equipped peripherals to the HDMI input.
