ASUS to ship Eee Box with next-gen Ion by end of summer

updated 04:10 pm EDT, Fri August 6, 2010

Eee Box with 1.8GHz Atom due by fall in the UK

ASUS will ship the Eee Box EB1501P home theater nettop in the UK later this summer or early in the fall, according to a Friday confirmation. The computer will sport a dual-core 1.8GHz Atom and Windows 7 Home Premium, and likely get USB 3.0 ports and Bluetooth 3.0, mirroring the specs of the upcoming Eee PC 1215N netbook. There will otherwise be 2GB of RAM and a 250GB hard drive.

Wireless N Wi-Fi and an HDMI output will be present as well. Graphics performance is expected to be impressive, as the nettop's new Atom will be tied to a second-generation NVIDIA Ion graphics chipset. ASUS spokespeople in the UK told ElectricPig the Eee Box EB1501P will cost the equivalent of $600 in the UK, including taxes.
