Asus's Eee Box 1501: Nvidia Ion plus dual-core Atom

The new Eee Box 1501 incorporates Intel’s dual-core 1.6GHz Atom 330 CPU and Nvidia's Ion integrated chipset.

Windows 7 Premium comes pre-installed on the machine, which can take up to 4GB of DDR 2 memory – although 2GB is the standard – and has a 2.5in 250GB Sata HDD inside.

The 193 x 193 x 39mm machine might make an ideal media centre for your living room. To that end, it is fitted with an HDMI port to connect it to an HD TV.

Given Asus’ claim that the machine is “50 per cent quieter than traditional desktops”, movies shouldn’t be ruined by Xbox 360-style mechanical roarings.

The PC's TV mount is optional

An integrated IPTV player also futures on the mini PC, and a remote control is thrown in for, well, remote operation. Bluetooth isn’t supported by the Eee Box 1501, though 802.11n Wi-Fi is.

Asus’ Eee Box 1501 is available now in black and white body colour options, priced at £340 ($567/€372). ®
