  • Asus Eee Box B202 Desktop System Evaluation

    This just popped up and is something we have talked about here in the forums before.

    Asus Eee Box B202 Desktop System Evaluation

    There is also a very good video review here:
    Asus Eee Box B202 Desktop System - Video Spotlight

    Now this thing is not going to play most of the games we all play here, but then again it's not supposed to . It is $350 though, and I think it would be perfect for a kid or what I am considering, as a HTPC. It's only downside is it can't handle 1080P, but does 720 just fine, as the video shows. And I really like that little bracket that comes with it so you can attach it to the back of a monitor and keep it hidden. Think about it strapped to the back of a LCD in the living room, always ready to surf the web or what ever.

    Not bad for $350, though I might be interested even more in a $400 one that didn't have any limitations.

    Does it come with the keyboard and mouse too?

      yep, though the 1st thing I would do is pic up one of the wireless Logitech keyboards with built in touch pads:

        Err, not sure what I would do with a touchpad. It would just gather dust.

        Goodness. That thing looks thin, really thin. I wonder how its Wii-like stand is like...does it have the easy-to-knock over problem the Wii has?

          Hmm... I'm happy with my EEE 701 and this looks somewhat interesting to me. It might make a good low power use internet station for the kitchen.

            HTPC? No blueray. No HDMI, No 8 channel LPCM output, No storage space, No TV Card, No 1080 playback? Weird review. It's like considering a Ford Focus for the Indy 500.

            I wouldn't give it to a kid. Half the fun of computers is taking them apart and upgrading.

              Wouldn't kids just spill ice cream all over the innards? ;)

              I wonder how long before I start seeing fellow IT and CS majors at DePaul lugging these around the campus...
