Asus unveils the home theater capable Eee Box B208Asus has added another model into their Eee Box lineup, this time its home theater capable B208. Overall, I would not say this is a powerhouse, but due to the small size, both in terms of the keyboard, mouse, and the actual PC, plus the addition of a remote this would make a nice addition to a home theater setup.

As far as the PC, it features a 1.6GHz Intel Atom 330 processor with an ATI Radeon HD 4350 graphics card that has 256MB of memory and an HDMI output. Additionally, the B208 includes 1GB of RAM, either a 160, 250 or 320GB hard drive, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Ethernet, four USB ports and a built-in card reader. The B208 also features a built-in battery that functions as a power supply should you loss power in your home.

The Eee Box B208 will allow for a choice of either Windows Vista Home Basic or Windows Vista Business. Both also have Windows Media Center capability. Sadly the one piece that really would have added some benefit is the inclusion of a built-in TV tuner. Oh well, maybe in a future version they will add one. In the meantime there are always external options available.

    This is an interesting and useful gadget, home theater and computer in one box. I would like to know it's price, but I assume it won't be cheap at all. But buying a pc and a home theater system is not cheap also, maybe it will be even expensive.
