Eco-EEEvolution in Desktop Computers from Asus

The highly anticipated Eee Box from Asus launched last month, giving gadget geeks one more eco-alternative for their computing needs, whether for business or pleasure. Slimmer than a paperback novel, the Eee box mounts onto the back of any VESA LCD display to save space.

Not only is this nifty little set up space saving, but according to the company, it’s time saving as well. They claim that it takes only 7 seconds from booting up to getting online.

Most importantly, they are taking advantage of the trend towards energy efficiency that we are seeing in manufacturers from Dell to Cherry Pal by reducing power consumption. The Eee Box is designed to reduce energy consumption up to 90% when compared to a regular desktop.

It runs Microsoft Windows XP, comes with the Intel chipset, 80GB of memory and 4 USB plug ins.

The company also recently announced the launch of it’s bamboo Asus laptops that are partially biodegradable.
