We understand that fast performance is not necessarily the point of the Asus Eee Box, but as we say in our review, which posted this morning, why pay $350 for a dog when you can spend $400 on a shockingly better budget midtower? If it's the small size of the Eee Box that has your eye, we'd encourage you to go for the Eee PC or a similar small and cheap laptop instead. At least you can carry one of those with you, and with the same degree of environmental friendliness.
We're not saying we'll never see a cheap, super-small PC that's worth your time, but unlike all-in-ones, these tiny budget systems don't compare well with their traditional PC counterparts. That goes for you, too, Dell Studio Hybrid. We want to like PCs like you, but so far you're making it hard.
