THE RUMOUR MILL has cranked up to Defcon 1 with the news of the desktop version of Eeeeeeeeee PC being launched at Computex.

It’s now been officially confirmed to us that arriving like a new-born to the ASUSTeK family by courier stork, will be the EBOX on 3rd June.

The only details that have been delivered to use at present are that it contains a 160GB Hard Drive, 2GB ram, will run Linux OS as found on the EeePC.

Although no CPU details were forthcoming, the likely suspect is still the Intel Atom – but who are we to speculate?

The unit does look rather like a Wii they’ve even got the angle right, unsure if that’s deliberate – but we do expect many parents to come home with the wrong console and emancipation hearings to follow.

More details to come as they become officially unveiled to us, or just wait for the full skinny from Taipei. µ
