ASUS EeeTop PC ET2010P


ASUS recently let loose 5 new EeeTop all-in-ones, and we're pleased that one of them, the ET2010P, managed to trod along and find its way to the Techie test lab. We're more than happy to welcome it, actually, because it's not that often that we get our hands on an all-in-one. We spent some time fondling testing the ET2010P, and the results of our encounter with it can be found below.

Being an all-in-one, the ASUS EeeTop PC ET2010P is dominated by a ginormous screen with a slew of ports tucked away behind it. The display's bezel comes with a piano-black finish, and the back side is metallic silver in appearance. We've got nothing much to say about its looks; the ET2010P is the plain Jane of all-in-ones.

 

As for ports, you could never say that the ET2010P has a shortage in that department. Its left side has 2 USB ports as well as a mic and 3.5mm audio jack to go along with a card reader. Its back side sports 4 more USB ports (bringing the grand total to 6 for the USB), the power supply port as well as LAN and HDMI connections. A Super Multi DVD drive can be found on its right side for your pirate media needs.

The keyboard and mouse are not wireless, so you still have to contend with wires. This isn't really a big deal, even though the wires (and the numerous stickers found on the display's bezel) may bring the overall look of the ET2010P down a few notches.

Now don't expect the ET2010P to be an Apple iMac contender specs-wise because it is only a basic all-in-one, and the CPU-Z figures tell this tale. An Intel Atom D410 runs the show along with a measly 1GB of DDR2 memory and Intel GMA 3150 graphics, so don't go all sadistic and do some hardcore gaming (except for older games) or run several resource-extensive programs simultaneously on the ET2010P.

The NovaBench score tells the same story. With only 102 points, it isn't far from the slowest netbooks we've tested so far and is even 5 points below another basic ASUS device – the EeeBox EB1501

For what it's worth, the ET2010P is still an all-in-one – although a very basic one at that. It can probably replace your old desktop if you're only after basic computing and Web browsing. Beyond that, you have to stay away from it.
