This review is from: ASUS Desktop PC Eee Box EBXB202-WHT-E0002 Intel Atom 1GB DDR2 160GB HDD Linux EZOS
Complete replacement for that old P3 box (you know what I'm talking about). Runs pretty much silent and low power.
BIOS flashing should be simple if needed. I was able to copy the .rom file to the C: partition and EZ Flash detected it. You should also be able to copy the .rom to USB flash drive and do it that way too. It can also boot from a USB flash.
The cover was extremely difficult to pry off when upgrading the RAM. First you have to remove the two screws behind the stickers. It uses DDR2 laptop memory 200-pin 533Mhz and the maximum memory supported is 2GB.
The default linux is really limited. I wiped everything off and used an external DVD drive to install Debian. Xorg worked with the vesa driver but its going to be a home server running headless anyway.
