Eee Box gets an upgrade, and HDMI-out

The humble Eee Box B202, which we liked last year, has been granted an upgrade by the technology gods. It’s now the Eee Box 206, and comes with an HDMI-out slot, meaning that you can plug this baby into your TV and watch high-definition content. It even comes with a remote control.

Specs-wise, it’s got an Atom processor, 160GB of hard disc space, 1GB of RAM and Wi-Fi. It comes with Windows XP, but I’d advise replacing that with Linux or Windows 7 swiftly. Don’t replace it with Vista though, whatever you do. For that, Asus is asking £309, which isn’t too bad for an HD-capable machine.

What do you reckon? Would you recommend this for a parent considering plugging a PC into their TV? Or something else? Share in the comments.

Weighing in at just over a kilo, the machine features a LED-backlit WSVGA display offering a 1,024 x 600 resolution, choice of Atom processors (945GSE Express or 82801GBM), up to 2GB of RAM, 160GB hard drive, card reader, webcam and Wi-Fi…
