eee-top-et20Asus has unveiled two new additions to its Eee Top all-in-one PC line. The original Eee Top ET1602 had a 15.6 inch touchscreen display. The new ET20 and ET22 models sport 20 inch and larger displays with resolutions as high as 1920 x 1080 on some models.

SlashGear got the details on two different models, designed to appeal to very different market segments. The ET2202T is an NVIDIA ION based machine, with a GeForce 9400M graphics card and HDMI output. It has a 20 inch, 1600 x 900 pixel idsplay, dual core Intel Atom 330 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 250GB hard drive, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, and a DVD burner. This model will sell for nder $799.

At the higher end, Asus is introducing the ET2203T which has an Intel CoreĀ  Duo T6500 CPU, 4GB of RAm, a 320GB hard drive, and a 21.5 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel display capable of 1080p HD graphics. The machine has a Blu-Ray drive, ATI Radeon HD4570 graphics, HDMI input, and 802.11b/g/n WiFi. This mdoel will cost somewhere between $799 and $1199 and bears little resemblance to the netbook-inspired low power Eee Top ET1602. But it’s still a pretty sexy little machine and I kind of want one.

The only problem I see with these all-in-one computers that can act as replacements for your HDTV is that they’ll probably be obsolete before your TV is. As much as I love the idea of having a TV and home theater PC packed into the same box, it probably makes more sense economically to pick up an LCD HDTV and slap a small computer like the Acer AspireRevo on the back. That way when you want a more powerful PC with new features in a few yeas you can just replace the PC without throwing out the display at the same time.
