Two version of Asus Eee desktops coming?

Rumoured Asus EBOX

It would appear that Asus will release not one but two Eee desktops next week at Computex. Much has been heard about the Asus EBOX but Asus will also release a second, higher-end model as well.

Anandtech got their hands on the Asus EBOX (they call it the Eee Box to the final name appears to still be in the air) and confirm that it will come with a 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor with Intel 945G chipset (rather than the Atom chipset), 1GB of RAM, a 160GB 5400RPM hard drive, an Ethernet port, 802.11 n Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. Anandtech also reports that three different models will be offered. I suspect we will see different hard drive options as well as a choice of either Linux or Windows XP.

More interestingly, Asus will also unveil a small multimedia desktop to be called the Eee Station. It will come with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor and an optical drive with Blu-Ray being an option. Unlike the EBOX, it will be able to support high-definition 1080p video playback. Other options will include the choice of an Nvidia GeForce 8600GT or ATI video card. According to Asus, prices will range from USD$650 to USD$1650.
