ASUS has released the new Eee Box, low power computer with a minimal footprint, and the latest product to emerge from Eee PC family.
The company aims to replace bulky PCs, allowing users to refresh their working environment with a compact, neat solution.
Designed for email users, avid web surfers and dedicated Voice over IP (VoIP) users, the box is just about the size of a paperback novel.
Inside this modern toolbox, the Eee Box supports the latest WiFi 802.11n wireless standard, providing up to eight times faster connectivity than previous 802.11b/g wireless.
The system runs on Windows XP Home operating system and is based on an Intel Atom N270 (1.6GHz) on an Intel chipset. It comes with 1GB RAM and a 80 GB HDD (5400 RPM).
The ASUS thermal solution integrates a unique heat dissipation module with the AI fan – allowing quiet (26db) and comfortable computing. Compared to a full-sized desktop, the Eee Box is an energy-efficient performer reducing power consumption by up to 90%. It also utilises Green Design and is made with only earth-friendly materials for reduced CO2 emissions; and conforms to stringent Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) and Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) standards.
The Eee Box is now available through computer resellers and will be available through selected retail outlets in approximately four weeks. Recommended retail price is AU$429 inc GST.
