Asus updates its Eee Box mini-desktops with Windows 8, Celeron processors

Asus has introduced a few new tiny desktop computers as part of its Eee Box family. But while earlier Eee Box computers basically featured netbook guts in a desktop case, the latest models feature faster processors and are expected to be available with Windows 8.

The EB1505 is one of those computers that looks like a glorified optical disc drive. And it has one of those — but also a 1.1 GHz Intel Celeron 847 Sandy Bridge processor, up to 4GB of RAM, up to a 500GB hard drive, WiFi, Ethernet,  VGA, HDMI, and more.

There are 6 USB ports, including 2 USB 3.0 ports and 4 USB 2.0 ports.

Asus also offers a VESA mount kit that you can use to attach the computer to the back of a display to create that all-in-one desktop PC kind of look.

If the EB1505 looks like a disc drive, the EB1035 looks more like a modem… or maybe a PlayStation. Anyway, it’s a thin computer that measures 1.15 inches thick, features an Intel Celeron 847 processor, and the same general specs as the EB1505.

One difference is that the EB1505 is available with a DVD or Blu-Ray drive, but this model ahs no disc drive at all.

Both computers will be available with Windows 8 or other operating systems.

    Hey fucktard. Windows 8 comes on 3 different platforms. Moble, tablet & desktop. Now go douche yourself.
