Asus Eee Box B206

 

The Asus Eee Box B206 falls between two stools — it's not powerful enough to take on other media-centre PCs and can't play back high-definition video as well as many of the cheaper media streamers on the market. That said, for undemanding users...

Appealing design, Relatively low price

Poor performance, Can't play most high-definition video formats

It seems the appeal of the Eee PC doesn't carry over to the Eee Box.

Small design may have some aesthetic appeal Integrated Draft-N Wi-Fi Pre-Windows ExpressGate OS lets you browse and do other basics seconds after turning on the power

Terrible performance and features compared with standard budget desktops, A cheap notebook will offer similar capability, space savings and portability

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
