Asus EeeBox PC EB1030 Performance Review, The Successor of AIO PC

asus eeebox pc eb1030 1 2

This device has a tiny physical form. Unfortunately mediocre specifications that could only optimized for lightweight computing.

The uniqueness of Asus EeeBox PC EB1030 nettop directly visible from the physical form. Nettop is the term for a desktop PC with a tiny physical form intended for internet access. Nettop is a mini version of the desktop, a netbook which is the shorthand version of notebook. This nettop has a thickness of no more than three centimeters only. Hence nettop can be placed in unusual places.

We can call this product as a wannabe AiO PC. Because the net op provides a bracket that can be placed on the back of an LCD monitor and can be “patched” so similar to the PC all-in-one. Bracket and supporting devices to attached to the monitor was included in the package. However, this mode can only installed on an LCD that has a standard VESA mount.

With Intel Atom Cedar Trail dual core processor, this device suitable for home or office users who are preoccupied with day-to-day computing activities such as use of office applications, Internet browsing, as well as running the music and video. Support of connections fairly standard, with only the four USB 2.0 ports and a card reader 4-in-1 with audio output. While in the back, you will find a display port HDMI and D-Sub to be used simultaneously on two monitors. Although there is an HDMI port, you can only use it to run high definition video files with 720p resolution only. While in terms of networks, you can choose to use a wired or wireless media. Asus EeeBox PC EB1030 is sold with the keyboard and mouse cables. If it is sold with a Bluetooth-based wireless mouse, this package will certainly more exciting.

We love silence of these devices when they are working hard. Even when used at the dawn time, we think this device power is off. Heat it generates is not felt and still within a reasonable temperature despite running heavy applications.
