ASUS Eee Box B208

ASUS has added a new headlining model to its nettops in the Eee Box B208. The new version is much more of a home theater replacement and comes with a 256MB ATI Radeon HD 4350 that gives it true, hardware-accelerated HD video playback. It also provides HDMI output for its likely home theater role and acceleration for Windows Vista Business, which itself is rare in nettops.

Every variant of the B208 also has the dual-core, 1.6GHz Atom 330 at its heart as well as a minimum of Vista Home Basic, 1GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive and 802.11n Wi-Fi. Some higher-end versions will also have 250GB and 320GB hard drives, though every model should have an Eee Cinema front end for more media center-like environment.

As is common with most ASUS launches, pricing and launch dates aren't available, though the PC maker has been selling its regular Eee Box models in the US. [via Liliputing]
