Asus 2400ET All-In-One Touch Desktop Review

17 thumbs up

The ET 2400, like most of the all-in-one's from other manufacturers that aren't Apple, is a three-legged design. Sound is provided by a single speaker bar at the base of the unit with a webcam mounted at the top.The major difference between the ET2400 shown above and the ET2400 we were shipped is the stickers. If you love stickers, you'll love this thing.


Here is a close-up shot of the system's rear ports. From the left, there's power, RJ-45, HDMI, standard VGA, a cable port (optional on some models), a Kensington lock, and four USB ports. Note that the HDMI port on the system allows its display to be used as an alternate screen / secondary monitor for a laptop or even desktop system. This gives the 2400IGTS a bit of welcome additional flexibility.


    

Here we have the system's back, both at distance and up-close. The third leg (visible here), proved capable of supporting the system at multiple heights without feeling loose or overly stiff. In the right-hand image, one can see the ET2400's 4-in-1 card reader, twin USB 3.0 ports, and dual audio ports. RAM upgrades are accessed via the panel immediately above the system ports (visible in both photos).

Nice review, I would certainly recommend this to your casual users. I know some people that have a hard time with their system and this seems more intuitive.

Agreed... it's actually a pretty good effort with Windows 7 Touch. :)

I need one of these to mount on the underneath of my cabinets in the kitchen :P

I've got one of these. Unfortunately, it requires a non standard wall mount adapter that according to Asus does not yet exist. Hasn't even been assigned a product number to look for. Annoying since they advertise quite prominently the wall mount capability as an option.

I never used the Win7 that came with it. It's had Ubuntu 11.04 since the day it arrived. Works very well with one major exception. Ubuntu 11.04 is unable to properly utilize the gb ethernet port. As a result, wired network access is limited to less than 1 mb speed. (yes, I installed the proper driver from realtek. it reports all the status correctly). This is without question Ubuntu's problem not Asus.

Wireless is flawless, as is bluetooth.

Sure looks like a very easy to use kitchen and user friendly family PC. Very sweet to see Asus develop these for the mainstream.

Very nice review.  I work in a research lab and this computer would work great in tight spaces and limited surface area that most labs tend to have.  It's a bit pricey for the average consumer, but for a large research lab... it would be considered a good investment :)
