Talk:Asus EeeBox PC
|WikiProject Computing / Hardware||(Rated Start-class, Low-importance)|
While Splashtop is Linux, I can only seem to find Windows XP EEE Boxes and even Asus's press release gives Windows XP as the only OS (see http://www.asus.com/news_show.aspx?id=11854). Because of the lack of information on it, I'm not editing the article, but so far I have yet to see it offered with Linux. 22.214.171.124 (talk) 18:33, 16 August 2008 (UTC)
- The Windows XP became available in France this Fall (don't know when exactly). The Linux version took more time to become available (maybe only December). Both versions are currently in stock at several prominent online retailers. They sell for the same price, the Linux versions having 2 GB of RAM where the Windows XP version only has 1 GB. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 06:02, 21 December 2008 (UTC)
- Not entirely correct, I purchased the 202 linux version and it did not come with 2 GB of RAM, it came with 1 GB. Also it was $20 cheaper than the XP Home version. 188.8.131.52 (talk) 22:22, 31 January 2009 (UTC)
The next Eee Box has been announced.
ASUS Eee Box or Asus Eee Box ?
DVI initialization problems with certain LCDs
I own a EEE Box 202 and there are problems with the DVI initialization with certain LCDs (mine included). You can read a little about it here. Asus released a bios update for this issue but it only corrected the problem on some of the LCDs not all of them.
EEE BOX B202 BIOS 0601. Enhance compatibility with certain LCD monitors.
So far the only work around is to use the DVI to VGA converter and plug your LCD in using VGA instead of DVI. I don't know if this should be in the article or not so I'm putting it here on the talk page. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 22:32, 31 January 2009 (UTC)
Shouldn't the Eee Box models (E201, E202, E203, E204, E206 and EB1006) be at least listed? Also, it will become increasingly difficult to maintain one list of specifications for all models. PizzaMan (talk) 15:36, 10 July 2009 (UTC)
EB1012P has USB3, but... not on all models!
This page is wonderful and super-helpful! I was looking at the EB1012P, and it seems it has many variants: EB1012P-B022E, EB1012P-B015G, EB1012P-B0320. The Asus page touts the fast USB 3.0, but doesn't seem to explain that there is more than one model. Distinguishing models is important, though, because it seems that two of the variants do not have USB 3.
So here's what I found so far: perhaps once we have enough information we can merge it into the main page.
* EB1012P-B022E - 2GB RAM, 320GB HDD, 2x USB 3.0/4x USB 2.0 * EB1012P-B0320 - no RAM, no HDD, no USB 3.0 (based on Amazon reviews; Amazon description says there's one) * EB1012P-B015G - no RAM, no HDD, 6x USB 2, no USB 3. * EB1012P-B007G - has USB 3, apparently (there's a question mark in the product description though)
