It looks like the cat is out of the bag, and Asus has no plans of trying to put it back in. We're talking about the company's upcoming Eee Box refresh -- the Eee Box EB1501P -- details of which have been leaked all over the Web, and apparently now confirmed by Asus. As the online chatter goes, the new Eee Box is set to ship stateside within the next few weeks, while the U.K. will get its hands on the nettop late in the third quarter or early in the fourth. Or at least that's what spokespeople from Asus have been telling everyone as of late. We're still waiting on confirmation for final parts, but... Read more...
In recent years, Asus has found a proven formula for success. Build a device -- even if it's already been done -- slap the "Eee" label on it, and sit back and collect the cash. That's been Asus' MO for a number of gadgets, and now it looks like we can add external storage to the list. Some attentive folk noticed that Taiwan vendor PC Home has started selling the Asus Eee PC 30GB 1.8-inch USB drive. According to the spec sheet, it supports USB 2.0 speeds and works with Windows 2000, XP, and Vista, though we see no reason why it wouldn't also run on Windows 7. Of course, portability is the name of... Read more...
Asus has been a huge fan of USB 3.0, and they have definitely supported the protocol on a few Eee PC machines and motherboards early on. We personally think everyone should be shifting to USB 3.0 as soon as possible, and it's tough to swallow any new PCs with "just" USB 2.0. Now, Asus is making a challenge to every other company out there: shift to USB 3.0, or get left behind. Asus was the first major company to include USB 3.0 on a mainboard, and the company has a huge lineup of USB 3.0 motherboards on the horizon. They are also promising to include it on a number of upcoming Eee PC netbooks (1018,... Read more...

In some respects, when we think about what the capabilities of a $349 desktop system should be like, we can't help but be impressed what Asus has achieved and the overall value of the Eee Box. What's more impressive though is the Eee Box's absolutely tiny form-factor and completely miserly power consumption. The original Eee PC notebook cultivated quite an enthusiastic following in the marketplace and we think the Eee Box is likely to as well.Asus Eee Box B202 Video SpotlightOur more detailed full review can be found here....

The scoop wire was running late tonight and these shots of Asus' upcoming Eee Desktop made their way to our inbox just now, so we thought we'd give you the digital relay on the skinny... literally.  Though it's hard to get a sense of size here, this thing is obviously svelte.  We don't have firm details but since this is an Asus "Eee" product, we can assume it follows the same mantra of "Easy to Learn, Easy to Work, Easy to Play".  Maybe a beefed up Linux distro and application bundle?  We'll see...   We should caution you that these are not "official" pictures per se. ...
