Manufacturer ASUS

The original EeeBox was a simple, small, energy efficient and very quiet machine that was perfectly suited for general purpose computing, but didn't have enough horsepower for high definition video. With only a single core Atom processor and Intel GMA 950 graphics, it couldn't handle 1080p content, and lacked the all important HDMI connector. In addition, it lacked an optical so it could only play DVDs streamed over a network, or ripped.

The Q100 and box.

The latest EeeBox is a more refined, complete package. As pictured on the box exterior, Asus is positioning the EB1501 as media PC that would fit right at home in your living room. It has a more elegant, contoured design and the way it mounts on its silver oval platform raises the front up at an angle, as if raising its nose with confidence. Looks aside, the EB1501 seems to have all the makings of an excellent media externder. A dual core Atom processor gives it a performance boost without requiring too much extra energy and Nvidia ION graphics gives it far better video playback capability as well as a HDMI port. It also has a slot-loading DVD burner, which is rare for a system of its size, and rounding out the package is the inclusion of a wireless mouse, keyboard, and remote control.
