ASUS showed off their Eee Box B206 PC at CeBIT and boy… it doesn’t get better than this if you’re looking for a budget, small form factor PC intended for HD media playback. The drive-less $440 PC (which can be mounted to the back of a LCD monitor or placed on a stand) features a 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor, 1GB of DDR2 memory, 160GB SATA II drive, ATI Radeon HD 3450 (256 MB RAM) graphics, Gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth, 802.11n Wi-Fi, HDMI out, and few other goodies. The PC is installed with Windows XP, but can easily be replaced by your favorite Linux OS of choice via USB install. The B206 is also ideal for powering media center front-ends (XBMC, Boxee) or serve as an extender client (for MythTV, Linux MCE, Beyond TV, etc.). Pair the B206 with a Logitech diNovo Mini and you’re good to go. Engadget HD has a full pic gallery to feast your eyes on. Availability: currently being sold in the U.K. — no word yet on U.S. availability.
