Asus Eee Box EB1031 Cedar Trail nettop

Asus’s new super-slim nettop is called teh Eee Box EB1031. Despite it’s slim exeterior, it packs the latest and fastest Atom chip so far, the 2.13 GHz Intel Atom D2700 Cedar Trail processor with support for 1080p HD video playback;  The motheboard hosts up to 4GB of RAM, and a 2.5″ hard drive bay with support for up to 500GB of storage.  The EB1031 also as USB 3.0 support, HDMI output, a D-sub port, flash card reader and built-in WiFi.

No word on pricing yet,  but it should be available in March.  Asus is marketing this particular model for business and point f sale use, but hopefully Asus will offer a consumer version of the nettop as well.

New AMD powered Asus Eee Box nettops coming soon

Asus Eee Box EB1021

Up until now, the Asus Eee Box line of nettops has been exclusively powered by Intel Atom chips.   Sure, some high performance models had NVIDIA graphics processors, but under the hood every Eee Box had Intel inside. Now, however, two new Intel Eee Boxes will be powered by the brand new AMD processors.

The Asus Eee Box EB1021 has a 1.6 GHz AMD E-350 dual core processor and Radeon HD 6310 graphics. It supports Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit or Windows 7 Professional and can handle up to 4GB of RAM. The computer will be available with up to 320GB of hard drive space, 802.11n WiFi, Gigabit Ethernet, and a decent array of ports including HDMI and D-Sub out jacks, 2 USB 3.0 ports, and 4 USB 2.0 ports.

The EB1021 consumes between 11W and 27.5W of power which is pretty good by desktop PC standards, even if it seems like a bit of an energy hog compared to its sibling, the Asus Eee Box EB1020.

The Eee Box EB1020 uses between 9W and 19W of energy, thanks to a 1 GHz AMD C-50 dual core processor and Radeon HD 6250 graphics. In my test, this chip offers Intel Atom-like performance for most tasks, but much better performance with 3D graphics and HD video.

The EB1020 is nearly identical to the EB1021. Both models measure 8.7″ x 7″x 1.2″ and weigh 2.4 pounds. Both models include a desktop stand, so you can use them on your desk or you can mount them to the back of a display with an optional VESA mount.

Asus Nettop with AMD processor

Asus ‘s Eee Box nettops, up untl now, has featured Intel’s Atom processor.  Now, with the new EB1020 and EB1021 models, comes a new processor option in the form of the new AMD Fusion chips.  The Eee Box EB1020 features a 1 GHz AMD C-50 dual core processor with AMD Radeon HD 6250 graphics.  Stepping it up a notch, the Eee Box EB1021, on the other hand, packs a more powerful 1.6 GHz AMD E-350 dual core chip and Radeon HD 6310 graphics. It also has USB 3.0 support, which the EB1020 lacks.

The folks at Notebook Italia spotted the nettops at CeBIT in Germany and shot a  hands-on video (check it out after teh break).  *Note, the AMD C-50 is actually a dual core chip, not a single core chip as mentioned in the video.

New Asus Eee Box PC EB1501P with Atom D525 and Ion leaked

Asus Eee box eb1501u

UPDATE:  Asus UK tells the folks at Electric Pig that the EB1501P will be available there late in the third quarter of early in the fourth quarter of 2010. The Eee Box EB1501P is expected to sell for about £379 including VAT, which is about $600 US

ASUS is gearing up to replace its aging EeeBox EB1501 with the EB1501P. It will reportedly be based around Intel’s dual-core Atom D525 processor and feature NVIDIA’s Ion graphics processor, a 250GB hard drive, 2GB of DDR3 memory, 802.11n WiFi, an HDMI output, six USB sockets and Bluetooth.

That fits quite nicely with the EB1501U (shown above) that we spotted back at CeBIT, which has yet to launch in any capacity since. A proper introduction at IFA, perhaps? We’ll be watching, ASUS.
