ASUS introduces EeeBox EB1007 with Pinetrail, without Ion

If you're looking for a nettop without all the fussy ability to play high definition content, ASUS's upcoming EeeBox EB1007 might be your ticket to standard-definition minimalism. According to Netbooked, the vanilla desktop was said at CeBIT to be HD-capable, but what we're seeing on the company's site doesn't appear to be, packing the new Intel Atom D410 processor, 1GB of DDR2 memory, 160GB of storage, three USB 2.0 ports, all topped off with 802.11b/g/n WiFi. No word on when it'll be available or how much it will cost when it does, but it should certainly slot in under the $387 EB1012.
