Don't let the doomsayers sell you on the idea that the desktop PC is dead. Far from it, desktops are just now entering their heyday with blazing fast multi-core processors, gobs of RAM, high definition output, SuperSpeed USB 3.0, HDMI connectivity, wireless input devices, and everything else you might find on a modern day system. No, desktops aren't dying; if anything, they're finding new ways of securing a permanent spot in your living room, your office, your dorm room, and even places like your kitchen counter or man cave. All of these areas are places all-in-one (AIO) PCs have been known to dwell. The AIO form factor isn't new by any means, but it's only recently begun to make a broad market appearance across a number of manufacturers beyond Apple or HP, who were among the first to pioneer the form factor. Better touchscreen technology combined with lower prices have made AIO PCs both practical and affordable. The ET2410 from Asus attempts to be both of these things. It's an $850 system built around Intel's Sandy Bridge platform and packaged in an ultra-slim body that looks fashionable and takes up very little space, despite bringing a sizable 23.6-inch touchscreen to the AIO party.
The Asus ET2410-06 ($899.99 list at Best Buy) could've been a contender. It has a fast Core i3 dual-core processor, a responsive touch screen, wireless keyboard and mouse, and future proofed ports, like HDMI and USB 3.0. However its bouncy screen and lack of Wi-Fi are both considered necessities in a touchscreen all-in-one PC. This system is one of the few that are not recommended. The ET2410-06 is quite attractive, and shows that Asus has come a long way since its Eee Top PCs, like the Asus Eee Top 1602 ($599 list, 3.5 stars). The Eee Top line was one of the first inexpensive systems to challenge the Apple iMac's dominance of the all-in-one PC market, but its design is clunky compared with today's all-in-one PCs. The ET2410-06 follows the current conventional design for all-in-ones: a stand with a single pivot for tilting the screen, recessed two-finger touchscreen with IR-sensing technology, and a side-mounted tray-loading DVD drive. There are some drawbacks to using this design on a touch-screen PC, however - the screen bounces. If you tap the screen quickly, as if you were dismissing a dialog box, the screen continues to shake for a few more seconds.
