Asus Eee Monitor details, pictures

Written by test

Terrible design

It's been on the rumor mill for quite some time, but now someone has finally scored some details and a whole bunch of pictures of the upcoming Eee Monitor. Eee PC News has scored no less than 15 pictures of the Eee Monitor and it will be available in at least two different color schemes, as the pictures portray a black and a white model.

We're not sure what Asus was thinking when they came up with the design, but it's anything but an iMac. The stand actually looks somewhat like that metal bar that Shuttle used on the XPC displays and it even has a carrying handle at the top. There's also a terrible plastic cable tidy attached to the stand that looks very cheap. It's powered by a power brick rather than a built-in power supply, which should mean that it's very quiet.

No real hardware details were revealed, but Eee PC News says that it will have a minimum of a 19-inch panel, an Atom N270 processor (that's the mobile version) and possibly a 40GB SSD or an 80GB hard drive. Not much to go on, but what can be seen on the pictures appears to consists of six USB 2.0 ports, a memory card reader, Ethernet, a dial-up modem, three audio jacks and a built in webcam.

The front has four control buttons, a power button and what appears to be an IR receiver, possibly for a remote control or some other kind of IR accessory like a keyboard. Just below the buttons are a pair of Denon branded speakers and for some reason the bottom part of the Eee Monitor is made out of see-through plastic, which looks very odd.

Luckily, everyone has different tastes, but we can't say we're fond of the Eee Monitor and with an expected starting price of US$500 (€316) it doesn't seem like an incredibly good value, either. Time will tell how successful the Eee Monitor is, but it seems like Asus really want to push the Eee brand up market, which we doubt most consumers will stand for.
