Asus has pretty much stopped offering its netbooks and nettops with Linux preloaded. Instead, most of the company’s products come with Windows XP or Windows 7. But retailer Newegg is selling a first generation Asus Eee Box EB2020 nettop with Red Flag Linux, a Chinese Linux distribution that’s designed to look an awful lot like Windows XP.

The Eee Box with Red Flag Linux comes with 1GB of RAM, a 160Gb hard drive, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Ethernet, a mouse and keyboard, and a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 processor.

Newegg is selling the nettop for $219.99, but after a $30 mail-in rebate the price drops to $189.99 plus free shipping.

  1. It looks like a great way to add a pc to ones home network or as a computer for a person that does not make/earn alot of money. With a low cost monitor, it will still be low.

  2. Guess they felt they had to do something with the Acer Aspire Revo AR1600-U910H with the Atom 230, Windows XP and ION being only $199 right now, without messing with any rebates or sales.

  3. This is an awesome deal for someone with modest computing needs.
