Asus is launching a new mini-desktop with an Intel Trail processor, NVIDIA GeForce 820M graphics, 802.11ac WiFi, and support for up to 8GB of RAM.
Update: This model was originally described as fanless… but it’s not.
The little box features Intel’s Celeron J1900 Bay Trail 2 GHz quad-core processor with a TDP of 10 watts, up to 1TB of storage, and has Gigabit Ethernet, VGA and HDMI ports, a flash card reader, 2 USB 3.0 ports, 2 USB 2.0 ports, and Bluetooth 4.0.
The system has NVIDIA graphics with 512MB of dedicated memory, supports Windows 8.1 and Windows 8.1 Pro, and will be available with 64GB or 128GB solid state drive or hard drives ranging from 320GB to 1TB.
Since the Celeron J1900 chip doesn’t generate a lot of heat, the EB1037 can use passive cooling. There’s no fan in the case.
The whole thing is powered by a 65W power adapter and the case measures just 8.6″ x 6.8″ x 1.15″ and weighs about 1.5 pounds.
