EeeBox PC EB1012 will get ION and 1080P

Plus and Dual Core Atom

Well I suppose that after the Eee PC line up was leaked we needed some good information about the small Atom powered line. This time it is the EeeBox that we are hearing about. It is a confirmation of rumors from earlier in the year.

 

The EeeBox PC EB1012 was rumored to contain nVidia's ION and a dual core Atom (N330). Well it turns out the rumors were correct. The new box will feature the MCP7A ION (GF9400M) an Intel Atom N330 (Dual Core) a 250GB 2.5-inch SATA HDD, 2GB of DDR2-800 (supports up to 4GB).

 

The best thing is going to be the ability to push out 1080p video to your display. This would put the EeeBox PC EB1012 in line as a decent low cost HTPC. Unfortunately Asus has chosen to put Windows Vista Home Premium on the new EeeBox, It would be much better with Windows 7 but maybe they will change things once it is officially released.
