Asus appears determined to dilute the Eee PC brand by slapping the name on every possible product. Electronista reports that the company plans to rebrand its upcoming Essentio CS5110 computer as the “Eee Station.”

The Eee Station will be a bit larger than the Eee Box, another Eee PC-branded desktop. But while the Eee Box is a low-cost, low-power device, much like the similarly named laptops, you’ll be able to configure an Eee Station to include options like a Core 2 Duo processor and a Blu-ray drive. Prices will range from about $650 to over $1600.

It’s not clear if the Eee Station will be available in the US.

It’s also not clear if and when Asus will get the whole thing over with and change its name to Eee.
