Pulling the EeeBox out of the package, there isn't a whole lot to it. Really, you're not looking at much more than a black chassis with some stickers and a logo on it.
With one of the stands in hand, it was time to set the EeeBox up and see just exactly what we're looking at.
The front of the unit doesn't give us a whole lot; we've got an Intel Atom and Windows XP sticker on the front. Flipping the flap open exposes ourselves to a power button, HDD activity LED, card reader, two USB 2.0 ports and two audio jacks; one for headphones or speakers and the other for a microphone.
Looking around the unit, the other side has a load of stickers on it which include the specifications of the unit, our Windows XP information, serial information along with another sticker that lets us know about the approvals the unit has.
Heading to the back of the unit, starting from the top we have our antenna point for the 802.11n wireless networking and below that we have where our power plugs into followed by a DVI connector, two USB 2.0 connectors, gigabit network port and another audio jack.
What we don't have is a PS/2 port which did cause a few problems since just about every keyboard in my testing area is PS/2. What I had to do was grab my Logitech G15 keyboard so I could type. While USB keyboards are readily available PS/2 still seems to be the weapon of choice for most people; it's just worth making note of.
As far as specifications go, the EeeBox we're looking at today isn't packing anything too powerful. Alongside the Intel Atom N270 that runs at 1.6GHz we have 1GB of memory and an 80GB hard drive.
Networking is provided with the help of a 802.11n wireless connection or a Realtek RTL8168C(P)/8111C(P) PCI-E Gigabit network port. As far as operating systems go, we have Windows XP Home included alongside the ASUS Express Gate operating system powered by Splash Top.
