Asus has a reputation for launching a new netbook model every other week for the past two years. While the pace seems to have slowed recently, the company is keeping the tradition alive with its Eee Box nettop computers. I’ve kind of lost count of how many Eee Box models are out there, but with the B201, B202, B204, B206, B208, EB1006, EB1012, there are at least 7 different configurations out there. And I hope you’re ready for one more, because Eee PC.it has picked up some details about a new EB1501 moel.
The main thing that sets the new model apart from the crowd is the inclusion of a slot-loading DVD burner. Eee PC.it can’t say for certain whether it will actually be built into the nettop or if Asus will be shipping the desktop with a USB disc drive.
But the EB1501 also has a few other features that make it a bit more attractive than your typical Intel Atom powered nettop. It sports a dual core Atom 330 processor, an NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics card and will come with Windows 7 Home Premium. It will have 6 USB ports, 2G of RAM, and a 260GB hard drive.
