ASUS Eee Box Preview & Intel's Atom Benchmarked

 

We take a quick look at the EVGA X58 Classified and provide an early BIOS guide for getting the most out of this X58 board and others.

Asus Eee Box B202 Compact PC

 

Well-designed, ultrasmall desktop serves for basic computing, but don't expect much in the way of performance.

Clever, compact design ; Low price

No optical drive ; Lackluster performance

With its white, boxy, angular design, the Eee Box recalls Apple's Airport Extreme or Nintendo's Wii. It includes a screw-on stand, as well as a VESA mount for attaching the system to the back of a monitor. And, unlike some ultracompact desktops, the...

Asus's Mini Invasion Continues with the Pint-Sized...

 

Asus has been cranking out new versions of the Eee PC faster than a Kansas twister, all thanks to the growing herd of Eee-mitators out there. Still, with

Small, lightweight and cuter than bowl full of kittens. More than enough processing power for everyday computing. Cheaper than an ounce of Da Kine bud. The option of running Splashtop for pre-boot access to Skype, web browsing and IM clients

Where’s the optical drive? No HDMI output, which actually doesn’t matter much because there's also no hardware decode acceleration. By itself, the Atom processor can barely handle 720p H.264 streams, dashing our hopes of this being the ultimate home...

Asus Eee Box PC

 

I have a six-year-old "performance PC" on my desk that I use mainly for Web surfing these days. That power hog consumes upwards of 250W to 300W for nothing more than surfing. The Eee Box would be a great replacement, since it only uses 18W of energy,...

Tiny. Quiet. Energy-efficient. "Express Gate" pre-Windows quick-boot mode. Windows XP Home (compatibility, software). Mountable on VESA monitor. Multithreaded processor

Smallish hard drive. No 3D performance worth speaking of. Low benchmark test numbers. Some apps may be incompatible. 1GB of memory. No CD or DVD drive. It's Windows, so you're vulnerable to Windows malware and viruses

The ASUS Eee Box PC is just what it's billed to be: a tiny PC that runs Windows XP and is good for Web surfing and simple tasks.

Asus Eee Box B202

 

Welcome to my 1st review of the new year. Today I will show you the adorable little Asus Eee Box B202. This is Asus' Mini desktop, or Nettop, since they are primarily designed for surfing the net. You will soon see that you can do a lot more with this...

Sleek white case ; No bloatware ; Nice specs for the price ; Around 20 watts of power ; Surf the net w/o an OS ; Waaay quiet

Ancient Windows XP ; Comes with IE6 ; No DVI to HDMI adapter ; Shoddy Express gate Wi-Fi setup

Asus Eee Box B204

 

Today were going to be taking a look at the Eee Box B204, a small, stylish desktop machine powered by an Atom processor complete with its party piece, ATI 3450 graphics. Over the course of this review well put it through its paces and find out just...

The Eee Box B204 is a quality system which can be used as a basic HTPC and everyday machine.

REVIEWS: ASUS Eee Box Mini Desktop PC (19th September 2008)

 

ASUS has expanded its Eee range of products with the new EeeBox. We take the time to see what we can do with it.

The EeeBox really does what it's supposed to and very well. It's a well priced machine that is compact, looks good and does general office work well, including email, MS Office and internet. You could watch some XVID movies and TV shows, but that's...

Asus Eee Box Desktop

 

Asus' Eee Box price is as small as the desktop itself—if you don't mind comparably puny performance, it could suffice as a secondary home system.

Incredibly small size; low power usage, noise levels; Express Gate software lets you quick-boot into Linux for basic tasks

Poor overall performance

Double your display real estate by adding a second monitor. It's a snap: Here's how

ASUS's Eee Box B202 small form factor PC

 

When Asus released the Eee PC, it introduced a brand-new class of notebook to the market. Asus's goal seemed fairly simple: to create a notebook as inexpensive and portable as possible. In doing so, it recognized our most common computing...

My time with the Eee Box was enjoyable, and the device is full of great ideas. It's the kind of thing I'd recommend to less computer-literate family and friends, but the limitations of the Atom platform at present—specifically the underwhelming video...

Asus Eee Box B202 Desktop System Evaluation

 

Asus certainly made a splash this year with their line of ultra-light, ultra-affordable Eee PC notebooks and they've been fleshing out the product line ever since with a wealth of new offerings, as the company continues to milk the product's successful...

Tiny Footprint ; Ultra Low Power Consumption ; Nicely stylish ; Ultra Quiet ; Performs well for the price

Can't handle 1080p digital video ; Slightly flimsy front door cover

We have one final data point we'd like to cover before bringing this article to a close. Our goal was to give you all an idea as to how much power the new Asus Eee Box consumed while idling and running under load.
