ASUS Eee PC Becomes EBOX

ASUS' E-DT desktop take on the Eee PC has been given a final name, launch date, and specs, according to a leak sent to the Inquirer. Now just called the EBOX, the system is due to be unveiled at the major Computex show on June 3rd and will buck the Eee PC's past use of flash memory for storage: the stock model will carry a 160GB hard drive that provides it six times as much capacity as the 20GB Eee PC 900. The EBOX will also hold 2GB of RAM, or twice as much as the newer Eee notebooks.


Most other details are unavailable, though the desktop is confirmed as resembling leaked images and is expected to use ASUS' custom variant of Xandros Linux. It will likely debut using the newer Atom processor shared with the upcoming Eee PC 901 instead of the Celerons that are used in ASUS' line to date.

The company has previously mentioned that it plans to price the computer between $200 and $300, and in leaks is known to be selling the system in black and white colors. No mention has yet been made of offering a Windows version.
