Asus is getting ready to launch a mini-dekstop computer with the latest generation of NVIDIA ION graphics and a dual core Intel Atom D525 processor. The Asus Eee Box EB1501P showed up on the Asus web site today.
In a lot of ways, the EB1501P is the desktop equivalent of the upcoming Asus Eee PC 1215N laptop. The machines have nearly identical specs. The main difference is that the 1215N has a battery, display, and you know, all those other things that make a laptop portable. The Eee Box, on the other hand, has a slot-loading DVD-RW drive, which the laptop does not.
The Asus Eee Box EB1501P has 2GB of DDR3 memory with support for up to 4GB. It’s available with a 250GB or 320GB hard drive. It has 802.11b/g/n WiFi, 6 USB ports, mic and headphone jacks, HDMI, eSATA, and Ethernet ports, and a flash card reader. The nettop runs Windows 7 Home Premium. It will be available in black or white.
There’s no word on pricing yet.
