Asus today held an event to showcase the various laptops, netbooks, desktops and all-in-one systems that are set to ship with Microsoft's new Windows 7 platform, once this is available later this week.
The UL series laptops feature a brushed aluminium cover and are claimed to have a battery life of up to 12 hours thanks to the latest Intel CULV processors.
Shown here is the Asus UnLimited (UL) series UL50AG with a 15.6in high-definition (1366x768) screen, which is set to ship with 64bit Windows 7 Home Premium and 4GB memory for £699.
The next photo shows the Eee Box EB1501, a compact mini desktop designed for home entertainment with Nvidia Ion graphics driving a high definition HDMI video output, 5.1 Surround sound speaker support, slot-loading DVD drive and dual-core Intel processor. It costs from £339.
Next is the Eee PC T91, a tiny netbook-style system with an 8.9in display, but which features a touch screen that can swivel around Tablet PC style to convert the system into a slate-mode system. This costs £409 for a system with 1GB memory and hybrid storage consisting of 16GB Flash SSD plus 16GB SD Card and a 30GB hard disk drive. The demo system was also running XP Home edition.
The Eee Top ET2002 and ET2203 are all-in-one multimedia touchscreen PCs with a 20in or 21.6in display respectively.
The ET2002 is based on a dual-core Atom 330 processor with DVD drive and 2GB memory for £559, while the ET2203 has a Core 2 Duo processor, Blu-ray and 4GB memory for £819. Both have surround sound.
Next, the Asus K70 is a no-frills laptop designed to provide multimedia performance and computing versatility without any extra fuss or additional cost, according to Asus. It has a 17.3in display and up to 4GB memory.
Finally, the Disney netbook is aimed at children and is very much the successor to earlier Asus Eee PC models with its 8.9in screen, Atom processor and XP Home. It comes in a choice of pink or blue designs for £299.
