Asus is now offering a new net top with netbook innards – the eee box EB1031. It has the new Atom D2700 cedar trail processor that hums at 2.13GHz clock speed and has full support for 1080p video playback, making it ideal for HTPC usage.
Other specs include 2.5 inch hard disk bay, 4GB RAM, USB 3.0 ports, 802.11n Wi-Fi, memory card reader, VGA and HDMI ports. There is no word on its price, but Asus assures us it will be on the low side. The company will start shipping this net top sometime in the month of March (2012).
