We had heard that an updated EeeBox PC was coming, and now its up on Asus USA's site. The compact EB1012 packs an Atom N330 processor, 250GB hard disk, 2GB DDR2-800 RAM (expandable to 4GB), Gigabit Ethernet and 802.11n Wi-Fi.
This could be a killer entertainment PC. The EB1012 is super compact (222mm x 178mm x 26.9mm), and Asus is saying its Nvidia MCP7A Ion graphics and HDMI output will allow full 1080p playback.
Also useful: a 5.1 S/PDIF audio connection, built-in multi-card reader (including SDHC), plus four USB slots, and one single eSATA port to connect your external hard drive.
