Full HD Home Entertainment Center in a Box
The EeeBox PC EB1501U runs on the Intel® Atom™ N330 Dual Core processor and NVIDIA® ION™ graphics platform and features a slot-load optical disc drive (ODD) to let you enjoy multimedia content on your LCD TV in Full HD 1080p.
The EB1501U's Total Media Center supports multiple media and codec file formats while SimHD™ sharpens video and scales up your DVD/SD movies from 720x576p to HD quality at 1280x720p or higher.
Pint-sized Powerhouse - Using 70% Less Power Than Your Average Desktop
Thanks to Intel's energy efficient Atom™ processor, the E1501U gives you up to 70% in energy savings when compared to traditional PCs. ASUS'proprietary Super Hybrid Engine enhances system performance and allows the EB1501's power consumption patterns to be tailored according to your required level of performance.
USB3.0 Super Speed
The new USB 3.0 is capable of providing a bandwidth of about 5Gbps or around 10 times the bandwidth of the current USB2.0. USB 3.0 is capable of transferring 2.1GB to a 2.5-inch HDD in 31 seconds, compared to the 1 minutes and 9 seconds of USB 2.0 in the exact same conditions*. This allows for faster transfers of high definition data, such as movies and videos, as well as various other large capacity file formats. It also charges USB-chargable devices with 900mA, faster than the 500mA of current USB 2.0. Finally, the USB 3.0 helps to extend battery life, suspending operations when it is in idle mode.
Right out of the box, the EeeBox PC EB1501U sets out to challenge the traditional "watching of DVDs on an LCD TV" home entertainment concept. With HDMI-output, a slot-load optical disc drive (ODD) and the ability to play content from your own media library in Full HD, the EB1501U is set to give your current home entertainment system a run for its money.
Adding a Touch of Style and Grace to Home Entertainment
The EB1501U's modern, contemporary design is inspired by the style and grace of a ballerina. Its elegant, space saving (1.5L) "standing diamond" form factor gives it the distinction of being the world's smallest PC to have a slot-in ODD; mount it on the back of an LCD monitor to save even more space and create an all-in-one PC at the same time.
Big things come in small packages and the EB1501U is no exception—with an array of I/O ports ensuring full connectivity. HDMI and S/PDIF output ports ensure a Full HD 1080p home entertainment experience with 5.1 channel surround sound; while the built-in 802.11n WLAN and Ethernet LAN port keeps you connected to your home network. Additional I/O ports include: D-sub, eSATA, card reader, headphone and mic jacks, and 6 USB ports.
