Asus launches Eee PC D200 media server with touchscreen
Asus is continuing to extend the Eee PC family well beyond its original netbook roots. One of the devices the company is showing at CES this week is the Eee PC D200, which is a sort of low power home media server. It sports a 1.6GTHz Intel Atom N270 CPU, 2GB of RAM, a 512MB flash ROM which probably holds the Linux-based operating system, and up to 4TB of storage thanks to 2 HDD bays.
The D200 supports 6 channel HD audio, has a DVI output, and serves as an 802.11n router. It also has a slot-loading DVD-RW drive, and even has a 3.5″ LCD touchscreen on the front which should allow you to access your media without a keyboard and without even flipping on a monitor.
Einfach Eee reports that the D200 should be available for around $600 within the next few months.
