Asus Announces Celeron-Based Eee Micro-Desktop

Paul Lilly

Asus today has added to its Eee family with the new Eee Box B203. The new nettop shares much of the same DNA as the company's previous version, except Asus traded in Intel's Atom processor for a Celeron 220 CPU instead. Asus also expanded the storage options, now offering a 120GB and 160GB version alongside the 80GB offered in previous versions.

Familiar specs include up to 2GB of DDR2 memory, four USB 2.0 ports (two each on the front and back), a flash card reader, a DVI output, onboard graphics, and Ethernet and wireless-n connectivity stuffed into a box weighing just over 2 pounds. Running the system is Windows XP.

No word yet on price or availability, but the low-power Eee Box will likely carry a slightly lower price tag than the Atom version.
