I'm not sure if there's something wrong with me but I never got caught up in the whole EeePC phenomenon. While the EeePC did spark the phenomenon that is the Netbook, the features and target audience for these products just weren't me, which meant I generally didn't care too much about it.
With that said, though, it isn't to say that the product wasn't good; you only have to look at the amount of clones out there to realize there clearly is a market and the cost of getting into a laptop has never been cheaper thanks to the huge amount of competition out there now.
ASUS thought it was time to expand the Eee name and bring out something for your desktop; thus, the EeeBox was born. The overall purpose of this product is very similar to the EeePC; it's got to be cheap and perform well in the tasks it's suited for.
We wonder, though, can an Intel Atom processor with 1GB of RAM really do much for us? There's really only one way to find out and that is to take the time to use and examine the product ourselves.
What we're going to do is have a look at the package and the EeeBox itself and then talk about our experience using it. I've taken the time to poke and prod my way around Windows XP and I will give you a rundown of my thoughts on it.
