Eee Box Unboxed

Foreword

Welcome to theraje's Eee Box Unboxed Web site. Here, I will document the unpackaging, setup, and initial tweaking of the new ASUSTeK Eee Box B202.

Unless you've had your head in the sand for the past several months, you've probably heard of Asus' line of Eee PC laptops - low-cost, ultra-portable laptops with solid-state hard disk drives. Over the past several months, the Eee PC has evolved. Newer laptop models come with Linux as well as Windows XP Home, standard hard disk drives, and even the new Intel Atom processor. Now, we have a desktop version of the Eee PC - the Eee Box.

Here, I will detail the unpacking and initial setup of an Eee Box unit using text and images. Feel free to view each page in succession, or skip to a section that is most interesting to you. I hope you have as much fun as I do!
