Although we thought the line “Eee” ASUS was dead with netbooks (remember the popular Eee PC?), The Taiwanese company in recent years has proved to be able to reinvent, “readjusting” the brand to new devices that – although falling in philosophy “Eee” – mark a new beginning. Examples are the Asus Eeebook, presented nearly a year ago, and Mini EeeBox PC.
The first was introduced by ASUS EeeBox in 2008, when it was announced and marketed as a compact desktop PC low-cost technical characteristics similar to those of a netbook. Over the years, the family ASUS EeeBox updated with more powerful hardware and chassis thinner and attractive but, with the untimely death of the Eee PC, the Mini PC have turned into mini-desktop business-oriented, suitable for being in company or in the office, rather than in your living room like old EeeBox consumer.
The latest model in the series is called ASUS EeeBox E410; does not change its appearance than previous generations but, thanks to the integration of a quad-core Intel Celeron N3150 (Braswell), may adopt a fanless design (ie no fan). It supports up to 8GB of RAM, up to 1TB of hard disk space and up to 128GB of SSD. E ‘it equipped with a HDMI, VGA, Gigabit Ethernet, audio jacks, two USB 3.0 ports and two USB 2.0. There is also a serial port and an optional WiFi 802.11ac with an external antenna.
ASUS EeeBox E410 also supports (up to) two monitors and video playback 4K. Measuring 219 x 172.5 x 29 mm, it weighs 680 grams and is provided VESA mounting kit that allows you to hang the Mini PC to the back of a display / monitor. EeeBox E410 will be available soon on the market, but its price is not yet known
