Compact desktop PCs like the Asus Eee Box EB1501P-B016E ($499.99 list) are popular among media-savvy users who like to stream their media onto a big screen. It's one of the easiest and most convenient ways to display your digital photos, videos, and other entertainment on your HDTV in your living room. The EB1501P-B016E is a relatively complete package that comes with a mounting kit to hide it behind your large screen monitor or HDTV. However, heavy downloaders and Blu-ray enthusiasts may want to look at desktop more like the Dell Inspiron Zino HD (Inspiron 410) ($849.99 direct, 4 stars), which comes with better performance, a larger hard drive, and Blu-ray. The EB1501P-B016E has an elongated oval tube shape, like the Dell Studio Hybrid and Giada Ultra MiniPC DN2301 (stay tuned for our review). Like the Giada DN2301, the EB1501P-B016E is larger than the Dell Studio Hybrid, with room for a slot-loading optical drive and a plethora of I/O ports - a good thing since the EB1501P-B016E lacks any sort of internal expansion. The I/O ports include 4 USB 2.0 ports, two USB 3.0 ports, a SD/MMC card reader, eSATA, VGA, HDMI, and SPDIF.
Asus is out to prove that big things really do come in small packages with its EeeBox PC EB1501P. This nettop offers an array of I/O ports as well as a slot-load optical disc drive and the ability to play content from your own media library in Full HD. Thanks to USB 3.0, the EeeBox PC EB1501P also supports fast transfers of high definition content as well as other large files from external storage. Powered by Intel's energy efficient Atom processor, the EeeBox PC EB1501P uses up to 70 percent less energy than a traditional desktop PC. To ensure you're not trading too much performance for power savings though, Asus' Super Hybrid Engine enhances the system's performance and also tailors the nettop's power consumption to suit your performance demands. For a full HD 1080p home entertainment experience with 5.1 channel surround sound, you can connect the EeeBox PC EB1501P via HDMI and S/PDIF output ports. The nettop's 802.11n WLAN and Ethernet LAN port will keep you connected to your home network. Nettops are definitely gaining some traction in the market, especially now that the dual core Intel Atom D525 processor is available.
