Asus has been flogging its EEEPC line for a while now and with some very good success.
No one can honestly deny that Asus almost (but not quite) entirely created the "net" system market. But is there a time or a point when they should stop?
Gizmodo has a preview of an EEEPC D200 that is a complete solution. It works are a router, media server (complete with touch screen) and it s full NetTop PC. But will this be a hit or a flop.

I'd say it falls under the drunk/brilliant category. According to Einfach Eee website (Varning! German!) the box will include an Atom processor, 2GB of RAM, a 1-4TB HDD, and 802.11n MIMO, and slot-loading DVD burner, a router and a touchscreen.
The intent of including the touchscreen is simple: it negates the need to either pipe into the NAS over the network or connection an external display, mouse and keyboard. Simple tasks, such as configuring the access point, moving files, setting permissions and burning DVDs (and hopefully direct media playback and torrent controls-with its DVI port, this could make a pretty amazing media PC) should all be manageable through the touchscreen.
