Design and Build Quality
The ET2002's display is bright and crisp. Although its native resolution of 1600x900 doesn't let you view full 1920x1080 resolution video, you can still enjoy high definition content. If you'll recall, we said the viewing angles of the ET1602 left something to be desired; we're glad to report that we don't have any complaints about the ET2002's viewing angles.
Below the display on the left side, you'll find a few control keys including Home and Menu buttons as well as buttons for adjusting the display brightness and navigating the menu system. The power button is on the right side just below the display. Below the control keys is a gray grill that hides the machine's stereo speakers. Asus touts the machine's SRS Premium Sound with virtual 5.1 surround sound capabilities. Overall sound quality from the speakers was good. Above the screen, you'll find a webcam and a dual-microphone array.
The right side of the ET2002 has the tray-loading DVD Super Multi drive and not much else. You'll find the microphone and headphone/audio out jacks, two USB ports, and the 3-in-1 card reader that supports MMC, SD, and MS cards on the left side of the machine.
On the back of the machine, you'll find a sturdy, spring-loaded stand that makes it easy to adjust the tilt of the machine to a viewing angle of your liking. This stand is very simple and also very effective. You'll also find a Kensington lock port, four USB ports, an Ethernet jack, an HDMI input (for using the Eee Top as a display for another device), and a power connector on the back of the ET2002.
