Hardware, Embedded Systems Asus' small Eee PC was a rather unexpected success for the hardware vendor - an expansion of the Eee brand was only natural. The Eee Pc 901 followed, with a bigger screen and the option of having Windows XP pre-installed. Now, Asus is moving into the desktop PC market with their Eee Box, an Intel Atom-powered mini-desktop PC, showed off at Computex.

Unless you were planning to use this as your main PC I'm not sure you would need an optical drive, there are so many other options.

Install over your network.

Use solely freeware apps from the web, the quality of which has grown tremendously over the past couple of years.

Use web based apps.

Heck I'd even go as far as saying ditch the hard drive too and put an SSD back in there, I could use the ridiculous amount of free space I have left over on my web host for storage.

If none of these options appeal to you, have you considered the playstation 3 as an alternative? I'm told that has an optical drive. ;)
