EEEbox B208 HD, which sports the mighty Atom 330 dual-core processor will soon be released in UK at a price tag of 500 pounds! Ouch, that would hurt anyone’s wallet in such hard times. Anyway, here are its specs:

  • Atom 330 dual-core processor
  • 2GB RAM
  • ATI Radeon HD 4530 graphics
  • Wi-Fi support for b, g and draft-n networks
  • HDMI-out video port
  • 160, 250, or 320GB hard drive

The overall package is pretty neat and you get a lot for 500-pounds.

Is ASUS going to advertise it as gamer’s EEE? Who knows? Anway, I was expecting to see it with Dual Core Atom processor. Imagine how powerful this nettop would have become then (dual core atom+ATI’s Radeon HD 3450 graphics card)

A Celeron powered EEE-box. What?

Alright, we all know that the EEE box was launched with an Atom Processor. But, now the ASUS has now introduced a model with celeron processor. This is the same processor that is being used in the ASUS EEE 700 series and EEE 900. Everything else is similar to the one with atom processor.

Celeron is already quite old now. I see the point that that they want to keep the Atom processors for the netbooks, but using the celeron processor is not a wise move especially when the competition is getting fiercer in the netbox market too.

  • 2GB RAM in 2030 model and 1GB RAM in 2020 model
  • Double layer DVD burner
  • 160GB HDD

Vista on a nettop? What was HP thinking anyway and Vista basic means no Aero interface = Not-going-to-buy
