While Asus isn’t ready to show off its upcoming all-in-one PC just yet, the company did show a few tantalizing images of the “Eee Monitor” at Computex.
If you think the Eee Monitor looks an awful lot like an iMac, you’re not alone. But there’s one major difference: The Eee Monitor will have a starting price near $500, which is less than half the price of an iMac. Of course, Asus will only be able to achieve that relatively low price by packing the Eee Monitor with cheaper components, a slower processor, and possibly less RAM and storage.
The Eee Monitor is scheduled for a September release, and will come in 19 and 21 inch models. Some units may have a built-in TV tuner, although I’m guessing you’ll have to pay a few bucks extra for that feature. And if history tells us anything, we can probably expect the Eee Monitor to be available in Windows and Linux flavors.
