Asus strikes again: EEE Box

This is a really interesting machine for a light-weight desktop: EEE Box at Newegg.

The core specs seem fine to me for a desktop office workstation:

Dimensions
223×178×26 mm (without stand)

The above was taken from here: http://www.asus.com/products_print.aspx?l1=24&model=2289&modelmenu=2

See this discussion with regard to Ubuntu installation on the EEE Box:

For me, the kicker is that the little device can be attached to the back of any 15″ or larger LCD display with VESA-standard mounting holes (VESA 75/100).
