CES may have been less well attended than last year, but it was still big enough that many stands went ungraced by the SlashGear team.  One I wish we'd called by was Shuttle's, who were showing off their X50 All-in-One nettop.  As has been pointed out, it's a direct rival to the ASUS Eee Top, only instead of that model's N270 processor the X50 rocks a 1.6GHz dual-core Atom 330 CPU.

ASUS Eee Top ET1602 Touchscreen Nettop Review

ASUS Eee Top ET1602 Touchscreen Nettop Review

At first glance, ASUS' Eee Top ET1602 is the epitome of a niche product.  Packing nettop-spec hardware in an all-in-one form factor, with a touchscreen and general design that seem to have stopped by HP's TouchSmart and the Apple iMac along the way, it's certainly tough to pin down.  Innovative new segment or just another Eee oddity: SlashGear set to finding out.

Dinky little Atom-powered nettops aren't anything new these days, but the majority still creak along with Intel's 1.6GHz single-core N270 processor.  Even ASUS' recently-announced Eee Box B204 and B206 pack the single-core CPU in along with their HD pretensions.  Thankfully Japanese retailer Clevery has seen sense and is offering a dual-core Atom 330 system, the ST8 Mini, at a reasonable price.

ASUS are planning a Celeron version of their Eee Box nettop, which will be cheaper than the current Intel Atom N270 model.  According to DigiTimes, poor sales of the Eee Box - which packs hardware usually found in the company's Eee PC netbook into a slender desktop form-factor - has prompted the new entry-level machine, which will go on sale alongside the existing nettop.
