Nettops have been getting more and more affordable; now that Asus’ Eee Box is available with Linux, they’re even cheaper. Newegg has started stocking ASUS’ little box that could with Red Flag Linux pre-installed. RF Linux is the distro developed by the Chinese government for use in China.
Currently the Eee Box EBXB202 uses last-gen Intel Atom hardware; in this case that means an Atom N270 running at 1.6GHz, 1GB of DDR2 SDRAM, a 160GB 5400RPM hard drive, Gigabit Ethernet and 802.11b/g/n wireless.
Still, the price is right: $219.99, dropping down to $189.99 after a thirty dollar mail-in rebate. Not bad, Newegg!
