Asus EeeBox 1501 review

 

As likeable as Asus' previous versions of the EeeBox and Acer's Revo have been, there's never quite been a compelling case for inviting a 'netbox' into your home. They make for a commendable experiment in small form-factor computing, but aren't quite...

Asus Eee Box review

 

We review the desktop version of Asus' super-successful Eee PC

Great price Ample hardware for XP Takes up very little room

Can't be expanded

It's about as cheap as a PC can be but not if you don't already have a monitor, keyboard and mouse to go with it!

Asus Eee Box review

 

The PC just shrunk further: with a smaller footprint and a slimmer profile than the average notebook, Asus's Eee Box requires little space on your desk. The Box starts at just £199, making it a great value for anyone needing a basic lifestyle PC for...

The Eee Box is a great value that's geared toward students, as well as home and small-office users. Even with its internal fan it’s practically silent and consumes little power, making it easy to recommend as the start of a budget or second PC system.

Asus Eee Box

 

If your desk is as cluttered with files, papers and empty pizza boxes like our desks, then you're going to need a tiny PC to take up as little of that precious desktop estate as possible. Stepping forward with a footprint the size of a baby chihuahua,...

A ludicrously low price! It's tiny

No optical drive. No dedicated GPU. Average specs

There's nothing groundbreaking about the Asus Eee Box... apart from that amazing price! Welcome to bargain city!

Asus Eee Box

 

Asus' ultra-mini PC, the Eee Box, has a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 processor, 80GB hard drive, support for 802.11n Wi-Fi standard and a five-card reader (SD, SDHC, MS, MS Pro, MMC). Best thing is it measures just 216x178x25mm and weighs only 1kg. The good...

Not quite as ground-breaking as Asus's Eee PC notebook, but the B202 is more than capable of performing basic PC tasks, and all for a double ton. Nice. Asus Eee Box is tagged with Asus and desktop. Select a tag (Asus, for example) to find everything on...

The Asus Eee Box requires little space on your desk and, starting at just £199, it's a great value system for anyone needing a basic lifestyle PC. UPDATED 13 AUGUST 2008.

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.

Asus Eee Box review: Asus Eee Box

 

Asus Eee Box

Small design may have some aesthetic appeal; Draft N wireless; pre-Windows ExpressGate lets you browse and do other basics seconds after turning on the power.

Terrible performance and features compared with standard budget desktops; cheap laptop will offer similar capability, space savings, and portability.

Despite a few useful features, the Asus Eee Box is a novelty at best. It can't come close to the same performance and robustness of even the most basic standard budget PC, and a low-end laptop can do everything it can do and more. The appeal of Asus'...

An unimaginative offering from Asus that does not offer value for money.

Asus Eee Box

 

We've got mixed feelings about the Eee Box, and nettops in general. You might as well buy a netbook and gain the bonus of portability.

Small size ; Attractive design ; Low sound ; Low power consumption ; Overclockable, if only by a tiny amount

Not enough grunt for video approaching 720p or above ; No optical drive ; Splashtop limited to 1440x1050

We've got mixed feelings about the Eee Box, and nettops in general. While we're particularly taken with netbooks, we also understand because of size, battery life and usage patterns there are certain concessions that need to be made in regards to...
