Asus is apparently playing mix and match with the components for its Eee Box line of low cost, low power, low profile desktop computers. A few weeks ago the company rolled out the Eee Box B203 with a Celeron processor (earlier models had used the Intel Atom CPU). Now Asus is adding an Eee Box B201 to the lineup. This one has an Intel Celeron CPU and a 16GB solid state disk instead of a hard drive. You can also get an optional 160GB hard drive if you want, but that’ll probably add a few bucks to the price.

The Eee Box B201 is available with WIndows XP or Xandros Linux, and it has all the other features we’ve come to expect from the Eee Box lineup including 802.11b/g/n WiFi, 4 USB slots, a DVI output, and a flash card reader.

thanks Stefan!

  1. This news is a fake! stefan has published this news, that he has more visitors on his blog

  2. Celeron and SSD on a desktop? For what purpose? I guess you could use it as a cash register or some such simple purpose. I understand SSDs on laptops/netbooks but desktop typically need more storage and don’t need the shock protection.

    1. Power consumption? Slightly lower prices? Remember that power is still important for desktops and I also think that future desktops will have no HDD storage or use SSD for holding the OS, and your movies, music, etc. will be stored on an external hdd, pendrive, NAS or on the net. This way you can travel your data everywhere (Internet), have it available on more than one computer simultaneously (NAS) or load it on any computer, even if it has no exit to the net (external hdd / pendrive).
