Asus Ebox Ultra portable Desktop PC

Looks great and powered by Linux operating system :)

According to the register hardware web site:

Asus will finally launch the desktop version of its elfin Eee PC early next month. Once dubbed the E-DT, the unit is set to retail as the Ebox, we understand.

The rather Wii-style Eee will incorporate a 2GB of memory and a 160GB hard drive, we hear, but for now Asus is keeping the full spec to itself.

The expected retail prices is likely to set between US $200-$300.
