Asus is launching a new model of its mini PC called the EeeBox E410. This new model comes equipped with an Intel Celeron N3150 Braswell quad-core processor. And as is the case with many of the latest mini PCs, it’s completely fanless, which makes it ideal for users looking for a PC to put in their living room or for businesses looking to use it in a conference room.

The specs of the new EeeBox are pretty solid. It starts with the aforementioned processor, which is supported by up to 8GB of RAM. For internal storage, users can choose between an HDD up to 1TB, or an SSD up to 128GB.

For ports, users will find two USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports, HDMI, VGA, Ethernet, microphone, and headphone. There’s also 802.11ac WiFi on board.

While not the smallest PC you’ll find, this is definitely smaller than your average desktop, coming with dimensions of 8.6″ x 6.8″ x 1.1″. It’s also lightweight, coming in at only 1.5 pounds.

Asus seems to be aiming this PC at users who want a small device, but who also want a bit more power than what is usually found with most sticks, which tend to feature weaker processors and 2GB of RAM. They get the job done for watching videos and the like, but specs like those featured in the EeeBox are capable of running more intense programs.

Speaking of which, there’s support for two displays and the ability to output video in 4K, which is something the cheaper stick PCs certainly can’t handle. This opens up a lot more use cases, especially for businesses.

There’s a rotatable VESA-mount that allows the computer to be mounted directly to the back of a display, which is quite handy for using it in a conference room or even keeping it low-key in a living room.

The new desktop should be available soon, though Asus has not announced a final release date or pricing as of this writing.
