Fancy an Atom-based Asus Eee Box desktop? You'd better hurry - reports coming out of Asia claim the company may be about to ditch the PC's processor for a Celeron CPU.

There's no official word yet from Asus, but according to industry insiders allegedly quoting from Asus' own price sheet, the Box is going to get a 1.2GHz Celeron 220, an storage upgrade from 80GB to 120GB and a 25 per cent price cut, according to a DigiTimes report.

The moles maintain the Eee Box hasn't achieved the degree of success Asus expected of it, hence the price to help shift some more units.

For now, the reports are contradictory, indicating that the Celeron chip will replace Atom and that the Atom model will continue to be sold once the new version is available.
