ASUS Eee Box cracked open for all to see

Close-up look at desktop Eee

| Posted: May 30, 2008 5:29 am

Anand Lal Shimpi has managed to get his hands all over an upcoming ASUS Eee Box system sample, which ASUS is hoping will take the world by storm, as its Eee PC low-cost notebook computer did when it was launched last year.


In this quick preview of the system over at AnandTech, we get our first independent close-up look at Intel's Atom processor compared in size to Intel's desktop E7200 processor along with the Intel 945GMCH chipset.


The machine I received features a 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor paired with an Intel 945G chipset, 1GB of DDR2-667 memory (a single SO-DIMM module is installed) and a 160GB Seagate Momentus 5400.4 2.5" SATA hard drive.


There is no optical drive but the machine has built in Gigabit Ethernet and 802.11n wireless. Bluetooth is also built in so you can setup the machine to only have two wires coming out of it (DC power and DVI out to your monitor).
