Product Highlights
  • 1.8GHz Intel Atom D525 Dual-Core
  • 2GB (1x2GB) RAM
  • 320GB 5400rpm Hard Drive
  • SuperMulti DVD Burner
  • Next-Generation nVIDIA ION GT218-ION GPU
  • 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi
  • Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit)

The EeeBox PC EB1501P Desktop Computer from ASUS is a compact desktop computer. It features a standing design that brings elegance to your desktop, while at the same time saving space. You can also opt to mount it to the back of an LCD display, thanks to the included 75/100mm VESA mount.

The system features an HDMI output for HDTV connectivity, and the ASUS Total Media Center application for video playback. It can output 5.1-channel audio via S/PDIF, making it a great choice for use as part of a home theater. The computer has a slot-loading SuperMulti DVD burner for disc playback and authoring.

The EeeBox manages to balance performance, size, and power consumption. A dual-core Intel Atom CPU is capable of handling most tasks, while generating less heat and consuming less power than high-end desktop CPUs. This allows the EeeBox to be small and quiet, while still providing enough processing horsepower to run multimedia, home, office, and Internet applications.

The system is powered by a dual-core 1.8GHz Intel Atom D525 CPU, and boasts 2GB of RAM, a 320GB hard drive, 802.11n Wi-Fi, and Next-Generation nVIDIA ION GT218-ION graphics. Device connectivity is achieved via eSATA, USB 3.0, and USB 2.0 ports. The computer also features HDMI, VGA, and S/PDIF output functionality. The installed operating system is Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit).

Full HD Home Entertainment Center in a Box
The EeeBox PC EB1501P runs on the Intel Atom D525 Dual-Core processor and Next-Generation nVIDIA ION graphics platform and features a slot-load optical disc drive (ODD) to let you enjoy multimedia content on your LCD TV in Full HD 1080p.

The EB1501P's Total Media Center supports multiple media and codec file formats while SimHD sharpens video and scales up your DVD/SD movies from 720 x 576p to HD quality at 1280 x 720p or higher.
Grace to Home Entertainment
The EB1501 series modern, contemporary design is inspired by the style and grace of a ballerina. Its elegant, space saving (1.5L) "standing diamond" form factor gives it the distinction of being the world's smallest PC to have a slot-in ODD. You can mount it on the back of an LCD monitor to save even more space and create an all-in-one PC at the same time. Big things come in small packages and the EB1501 series is no exception-with an array of I/O ports ensuring full connectivity. HDMI and S/PDIF output ports ensure a Full HD 1080p home entertainment experience with 5.1 channel surround sound, while the built-in 802.11n Wi-Fi and an Ethernet LAN port keep you connected to your home network. Additional I/O ports include VGA, eSATA, a card reader, headphone and mic jacks, and 6 USB ports.

Right out of the box, the EeeBox PC EB1501P sets out to challenge the traditional "watching of DVDs on an LCD TV" home entertainment concept. With HDMI output, a slot-load optical disc drive (ODD) and the ability to play content from your own media library in Full HD, the EB1501P is set to give your current home entertainment system a run for its money.
Pint-Sized Powerhouse -- Uses 70% Less Power Than Your Average Desktop
Thanks to Intel's energy efficient Atom processor, the EB1501 series gives you up to 70% in energy savings when compared to traditional desktop PC. ASUS' proprietary Super Hybrid Engine enhances system performance and allows the EB1501 series power consumption patterns to be tailored according to your required level of performance.
USB 3.0: Ten Times Faster than USB 2.0
USB 3.0 has a bandwidth of about 5Gbps -- about 10 times that of USB 2.0. This allows for high speed data transfers of large files like movies and videos. It also charges USB-compatible devices faster. Finally, the USB 3.0 helps to extend battery life, suspending operations when it is in idle mode.

      I'm really happy with this PC. I've worked in IT for ten years and I've alwasy been a big ASUS fan - you know you're getting a product with a good bang for your buck, and it wont die on you. I bought it to use as a media center and also a desktop. I mounted it using the provided VESA mount to the back of a monitor on my desktop, and also used the HDMI output to connect to my TV in the same room. It works great as a desktop and also as a media player/streamer. The VESA mount is great, makes for a nice clean installation. The performance is above my expextations, it runs absolutely silent - perfect for watching movies, the size is great for my small apartment, and the price at B&H was awesome.

      Its good for home entertainment TV set up comes with mouse and keybordthat works good (didnt try it from long distance) has a HDMI port gigabit, and WiFi. Im not a big fan of the 35mm jack to RCA for digital coaxial. I didnt spend a lot of time working on it but I couldn't get ot to work. You canupgrade RAM to 4gigs. Look on U tube for guidance becaue openingit could be a challange for some. I had it for a week before I noticethe CD rom was not working. [...] im currently waiting for a replacement. Should you buy this? If you likeWin 7 yes!! MAC users get the mini MAC. I have both and had no problems with the MAC. Comes with a mount that can attached on the back of a TV but the screw holes on it only fit the TV wall mount for smaller TV's. P.S. dont use theASUS media software it's worthless un-install it.can only be used with sm

            Using this behind a 42 inch Flat Screen for departmental e-bulletin board. With windows 7, a nice sized hard drive, strong wifi, and great blue tooth keyboard and mouse you can't beat it. While I wouldn't use it to play the newest FPS shooter graphics are also suprisingly smooth.

            Highly recommend for similar application or home theater PC.

            Verified Buyer

            Comments about ASUS EeeBox PC EB1501P Desktop Computer (Black):

            Pros:
            - Great for watching online videos.
            - Responsive in replying my emails to support.

            Cons:
            - Documentation is scarce.
            - Doesn't come with HDMI cable.
            - A stand screw suspected to be missing.
            - WiFi seems to only work at 2.4GHz (5GHz doesn't work).
            - Take longer than expected for initial setup.

            Summary:
            - Doumentation is scarce, so I have to kinda figure my way out of setup. My WiFi at home is set to 5GHz band (to avoid interference with my 2.4GHz phone), but apparently it doesn't work for EeeBox. Once I passed that, it works great for my purpose -- watching online videos.

              A good product, very easy to setup. I hooked it up through HDMI cable to my 32 inch LCD TV. My wife and and my little son uses it to watch movies, surf the doing home work. It is perfect. I did the upgrade of RAM, step by step according to youtube video, so the total RAM is 4G. The machine is reliable.

                Installed this On a 47" Vizio TV With a USB TV tuner and it ia a great media center. Does not work very well with the HDMI connection pictures keeps stopping and starting but I swithed to a VGA and optical to the receiver and now it works great. Nice and quiet.

                It is a nice and sleek box, but watching flash video full screen is a bit choppy while in the window it is OK. This prompts that either processor or graphics is not coping with rescaling. For these money I would suggest to buy a micro-tower PC with a normal processor. For example, HP s5650z with 512MB NVIDIA GeForce or ATI graphics.

                      Piggybacks on the back of my 22" monitor, clears up my desk, and is a wonderful nettop. With the remote control, and media centre, I get an awesome internet TV with netflix. HD works fine on flash-based sites, but netflix (silverlight) HD is annoyingly choppy.

                      Power consumption is quite low!
