Asus has introduced a new super-slim desktop computer called the Eee Box EB1031. It has a 2.13 GHz Intel Atom D2700 Cedar Trail processor with support for 1080p HD video playback, up to 4GB of RAM, and a 2.5″ hard drive bay with support for up to 500GB of storage.
The EB1031 also as USB 3.0 support, HDMI output, a D-sub port, flash card reader and built-in WiFi.
While it looks like it would make an excellent home theater PC, Auss is positioning the EB1031 as a system for businesses. It could be used for digital signage, or a point-of-sales system, for instance.
There’s no word on the final pricing for this little desktop, but it should be available in March. Hopefully Asus will offer a consumer version of the nettop as well — or at least an opportunity for individuals to purchase the EB1031.
