Final ASUS Eee Box Specs

Full details of ASUS' Eee Box have been made available a day ahead of the official release, says HotHardware. Known as the B202, the inaugural model will have the already-confirmed 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor but will have several choices for memory, storage, and the operating system. Versions will have as little as 512MB of memory and an 80GB hard drive, but scale up to 2GB of memory and 250GB of storage; different models will have the option of Linux or Windows XP, while some will also have Bluetooth onboard for wireless peripherals and cellphones.

Every version has 802.11n Wi-Fi, gigabit Ethernet, and a multi-format card reader.

US configurations also been unveiled and reveal the system to be one of ASUS' least expensive systems and will undercut the Eee PC notebook in most cases. A base system at $269 will sport 1GB of memory, an 80GB hard drive, and Linux; adding Windows without changing specifications boosts the price to $299, while a higher-end Linux version keeps the $299 price but doubles RAM to 2GB and the permanent storage to 160GB. A North American release is expected by mid-July.
