Summary: The Asus Eee Box B206 falls between two stools — it's not powerful enough to take on other media-centre PCs and can't play back high-definition video as well as many of the cheaper media streamers on the market. That said, for undemanding users who aren't into HD video, it's worth a look.
Pros: Appealing design, Relatively low price
Cons: Poor performance, Can't play most high-definition video formats
