Perfect Low-traffic Home-server!
This review is from: ASUS Eee Box EBXB202-WHT-E0002 Desktop PC Intel Atom N270 (1.60GHz) 1GB DDR2 160GB HDD Linux EZOS
Pros: Perfect swiss-army-server for $100. Have mythBuntu 11.10 installed on it with apache2 configured to host 3 websites. Secure FTP, ventrilo server, torrentflux, and the mythweb interface. Runs ridiculously quiet compared to any other desktop PC I've owned. Haven't setup MythTV yet as I'm waiting on my USB-TV stick.
Cons: Couldn't disable the wireless with the default bios firmware so had to upgrade that... actually wasn't too bad with the ASUS EZ FLASH utility in the bios.
Other Thoughts: This thing is supposed to run OS-X 86 fairly well, too but aside from the "wow" factor, I think running Linux is the far better choice.
