Asus Unveils New EeeBox EB1501-1

Similar to the recent EB1012, the Asus EeeBox EB1501 is a compact, comprehensive PC for your home theater system. Like the EB1012, the 1501 features an Intel Atom N330 dual core, NVIDIA ion graphics, 2 GB of DDR2-800 RAM and SATA 2.5-inch, 250-gig HDD. The new device adds an optical disc drive (DVD-RW) and Windows 7 for added performance. An assortment of connection jacks and ports ensure that you’re never left scratching your head holding a cable end–HDMI, S/PDIF, 802.11n WLAN, Ethernet LAN port, D-sub, eSATA, card reader, headphone and mic jacks, and 6 USB ports. Enjoy all of your video content on your LCD TV in full 1080p HD along with full surround sound from either the HDMI or S/PDIF outputs. SimHD upscales video to HD quality. The super-slim drive saves both space and power–Asus claims that it is 70% more efficient than a desktop. Further, its “modern, contemporary design is inspired by the style and grace of a ballerina.” Its price and availablity have not been released, but its expected to run 399 Euros ($580) when it hits Europe after Windows 7 is released.
