Asus Eee Top ET2002T with Nvidia Graphics

The new Asus Eee Top ET2002T is an All-In-One nettop with a 20″ screen at 1600×900 pixels. Under the hood it packs a dual core Intel Atom 330 processor and Nvidia Ion graphics which should help it drive high definition video on the relatively high resolution display. Rounding out the specs are 2gb of ram and a 250gb hard drive. Interestingly, the ET2002T also has an HDMI input port, so you can display another computer on its screen.

Spec wise, the new Eee Top follows on nicely from Asus’s earlier All-In-One Nettop, the ET1602. This new Asus nettop will go head to head with Lenovo’s 20″ brand new nettop, the IdeaCentre C300. They both have 20″ screens and Atom 330 processors. Hopefully, we’ll get a chance to look at them side by side and see how Ati’s graphics on the Lenovo compare to the Asus’s Nvidia Ion solution.

Featured Band : Dream Theater Black Clouds & Silver Linings

One doesn't so much listen to Dream Theater as get overrun by them, and ten studio albums in, the band are still pursuing their uber-muscular progressive metal agenda with ruthless dedication.

Their undoubted collective instrumental firepower is deployed like a bunch of marauding marines with anger management issues, slipping the leash and swarming over everything in their path.

To get anywhere near that you have to go through four tracks of bombast-heavy bashing before you arrive at The Best Of Times. Even then it's only a matter of minutes (2' 55'' to be precise) before the listener is blasted back into the high-octane cut and thrust of it all.

True, John Petrucci's souped-up athletic guitar runs are amongst the quickest things you're ever likely to hear.

However one person's thrash is another's idea of brash and whilst it's easy to understand the exhilarating sense of momentum such advanced technique affords the group, it's unrelenting nature quickly palls to all but the faithful. Sometimes it's not what you’ve got that counts but how you use it.
