We very briefly mentioned the Asus Eee Box as an example of an ultra low-cost desktop PC that will be hitting the market soon, but we didn’t have any idea what it looked like. Asus has officially unveiled the new Ee Box and it looks like it will come in three different colors, white, black, and red.
Take a look at the images below. My first thought is that it’s very sleek and modern looking. It also reminds me of a Wii in some ways with the way it’s slim, and the way it sits. The benefit to the Eee line of computers is that they are designed to be simple. With the Eee Box, a user just has to plug in a monitor and keyboard, and they’ll be ready to use their Linux based system. They say that you can power up and be on your preferred web browser in just 5 seconds.
One the official announcement, they also talk about using your Eee Box as a wireless digital hub for streaming music, pictures, and movies from a media center. There’s still no word on when we can expect these computers to hit the market, but we imagine they’ll be a pretty big hit.
