Asus Eee Box - First Look

 

The desktop variant of Asus' Eee range, the Eee Box, makes quite an impression.

Asus EeeBox B204 review

 

Do discrete graphics and an HDMI port turn Asus' miniature marvel into the ultimate media centre?

An even better value budget desktop, but still only capable of basic tasks

Asus Eee Box B202 review

 

Small, cheap and quick to boot, the Eee Box brings Asus' computing revolution to the desktop. But is it as essential?

Another stroke of genius from Asus, but not quite the must-have that is the Eee PC netbook

Asus Eee Box B202 review

 

The Asus Eee Box is a home PC and costs just £234 - a bargain

Lovely design ; Really tiny

Underperforming ; Weird display issues

The kind of PC your gran would like, just a shame Asus haven't cranked the innards up a bit

Asus Eee Box B204 review

 

We looked at the original Asus Eee Box (review here) a few months back, finding it to be a great solution as a cool and quiet low-power desktop PC. While we didn't exactly expect it to be a gamesmeister, its integrated graphics chip nonetheless ruled...

If you don’t need the UPS option, look to the all-but-identical B206 version – although this also omits Bluetooth – for £20 less. Either way, the extra graphics power and double-sized 160GB hard drive make the Asus Eee Box B204 a viable alternative to...

Asus Eee Box B204

 

When the Asus Eee PC was launched into stores, the low spec'd, portable and budget notebook took the tech world by storm. Its upgradability and low price tag meant that it was the perfect budget notebook solution for many. Asus is back, back with a...

The Asus EeeBox B204 is a great little computer system which can handle all basic and simple computer tasks. For students and home-offices this would be a perfect energy efficient computer.

Review: Asus Eee Box B204

 

Perfect for those places where you need a capable PC, but just don't want to see it

The Asus Eee Box B204 is an incredibly compact and surprisingly capable performer, but it's better suited to day-to-day productivity applications than more demanding tasks. The onboard Wi-Fi and battery are welcome additions, but it's a pity that the...
