Yum. Here’s the ASUS EeeBox PC EB1501. It’s a tiny “ballerina-inspired design” that features a dual-core Atom CPU, NVIDIA ION graphics, and — gasp!!! — an optical drive?
Yes, this could very easily make a dynamite HTPC that wouldn’t uglify your living room in the slightest.
Specs include the following:
- Windows 7 Home Premium
- Intel Atom N330 dual core CPU
- Two RAM slots for up to 4GB of memory
- 250GB SATA hard drive
- DVD burner
- NVIDIA ION graphics
- Gigabit Ethernet, b/g/n Wi-Fi
- HDMI and VGA out
- Weighs 2.65 pounds
Availability is slated for October 22nd in Europe for 399 Euro (about $580) — no word on whether or not we’ll see this thing in the US, but here’s hoping we do.
