Asus Eee Box

 

Asus seems to have lost the plot lately, with regard to the way it's filled up its Eee PC lineup. What was once a series of small notebooks aimed at the casual user has now become an irritating segment of low-powered machines with similar...

All told, we don't recommend this product at all. Considering that you'd need to add a display panel to make this device functional, for the same price one can easily assemble a low-cost desktop – or go in for a netbook. Not only do netbooks offer...

A stylish, space-saving desktop that's fine for surfing the Web and only basic computing chores.

The Eee Box offers solid Web surfing, e-mail, and document processing in sleek, space-efficient package. But is it worth $349? It depends on your priorities.

The PC just shrank further: With a smaller footprint and a slimmer profile than the average notebook's, Asus's Eee Box requires little space on your desk. The Box starts at just $350 (computer only; no monitor included), making it a great value for...

Clever, compact design ; Low price

No optical drive ; Lackluster performance

Well-designed, ultra-small desktop serves as a viable option for basic computing, but don't expect much in the way of performance.

Our workstation alternative

 

We are in a small office that uses RDP, so a robust workstation isn't required. We love these because of their small size, ability to run dual monitors, and they come with Windows 7 Pro.

These are fast enough for our needs and have plenty of RAM to run Win 7. They will also run dual screens and seem pretty well built. The form factor is easy to squeeze onto a desk or mount behind a television using the included hardware

The keyboard isn't bad, but the mouse is a throwaway. To run dual screens we had to order an HDMI to DVI cable. The processor seems to bottleneck with Windows updates and other CPU intensive tasks. I'm not taking away an egg because we knew it was a...

So far so good

 

I bought this for my parents. I wanted to get something that would free up some space and that would be relatively fast and cheap, this fit the bill. So far my parents love it.

I think Asus dropped the ball

 

All in all I would have kept the unit if it worked properly. Just don't expect it to be a screamer, not that I did, but it is pretty low end as far as speed

Nicely constructed, compact

DVD drive did not funtion, since this is an all in one unit, it pretty much made it a ruturn, this thing has a single core Atom. Single core processors just don't cut it now days

Perfect for any room

 

this is more powerful than my tower, and all though it doesn't say it does come with an AWESOME PLUG AND PLAY KEYBOARD; MOUSE AND DVD/COMPUTER REMOTE. I have this hooked up to my 44 inch hitachi lcd tv, just plugged it in, hooked it up via hdmi and I...

The Eee Box is rather a mixed bag. It's not powerful enough to challenge the vast majority of desktops on the market and, as a Media Center PC, it's only mediocre. Despite this, we think it's worthy of consideration -- particularly because it's so cheap

Design ; Quiet operation ; Price

Lacklustre performance ; Small hard drive ; Can't play 1080p Full HD video

Conclusion The Eee Box is rather a mixed bag. It's not powerful enough to challenge the vast majority of desktops on the market and, as a Media Center PC, it's only mediocre. Despite this, we think it's worthy of consideration -- particularly because...

The Asus Eee Box is a well-designed, ultrasmall desktop PC that is adequate for basic computing - but don't expect much in the way of performance.

The Asus Eee Box is a great value PC that's geared toward students, as well as home and small-office users. That the system comes with Windows XP Home, Microsoft Works, and Sun StarOffice only sweetens the deal.
