Eee all-in-one touchscreen PC: a good first step

Remember that Eee Monitor from a while back? Well! It’s all growns up and it’s sporting a touchscreen and Windows XP. I have to say, though, as nice as it would be to have a little XP touchscreen around the house, the specs are a little lacking: 1GB of RAM, a 1.6GHz Atom processor, 160GB HDD, and 128GBMB (heh) of shared graphics. The 15.6-inch screen would be nice to run your fingers over, but I feel like compromises were made here that would limit the machine’s usability.

Still, a full-blown touchscreen XP box for just under $700, though it’s just pre-order at the moment, to be shipped next month. Lovely.

Update: Digitimes says the “Eee Top” will cost $450 and will come in 16″ and 19″ flavors. Uh, we’ll get back to you with more definite details whenever that happens.
