With the world anxiously awaiting the Asus Eee Box , it's all too easy to overlook the company's other small PCs. We've already seen the Nova P20 , and now we have the privilege of showing you its younger, more attractive sibling, the Nova Lite.

It's designed primarily for use as a media center machine. Its petite frame (231 x 184 x 51 millimeters) is small and cute enough to fit alongside your existing AV equipment without looking too out of place. It even comes with a stand so you can position it vertically as well as horizontally.

Inside, our entry-level sample is packing a 1.6GHz Intel Core 2 Duo CPU, 1GB of RAM, and an 80GB hard drive, so it's not going to win any awards for speed or storage. However, it's quick enough to play HD movies over its HDMI and DVI ports without stuttering and you can easily add more storage via one of the four USB ports at the rear. To see more, click here .
