Touchscreen desktop Eee due November

UK debut revealed

Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

Asus' iMac-alike all-in-one touchscreen-equipped desktop Eee PC is due to arrive in the UK toward the end of November, local retail sites reckon.

The new desktop, which comes under the ungainly model number ETP1602-WT-X0010, is Asus' biggest screen Eee PC yet: it's got a 16:10-ratio, 15.6in touch-sensitive panel, though at this stage the display's resolution remains uncertain.

The Eee has on-board 802.11n Wi-FI and Gigabit Ethernet. there are six USB ports - two on the side, four at the back - audio socketry and a multi-format memory card reader. Despite the touchscreen, the Eee comes with a mouse. A keyboard is bundled too.
