    Just a quick Q :)

    Hi guys,
    Would this PC HERE
    Work on an M2 - ATX supply?

    I've seen it says it 19V @ 65w


    Will this not run

    Cheers

    Dude! I bought an HP- E-pc for the same reason - until i realised it was a slow piece of junk when i got it running!

    If you have the cash to spend on the asus - looks like a good deal..
    All you need to do is get on Ebay and get yourself a universal laptop car adapter - preferably a decent targus or something - although the $15 Australian DOllar item i brought ran the EPC for days with no dramas.

    19V is generally a laptop power brick voltage - which is why u would use the laptop adapter.

    If your keen on a project, there are plans all over the net to build your own, or buy, a startup / shutdown controller.

    This is probably an easier way out than mini-itx / M2 - youve already got a case sorted out, power sorted out on the cheap$$ amd a full warranty on the actual PC itself - not to mentioned its engineered for all components to work well together.

    Hope this helps. Wish id seen something like it earlier!

    It looks like that board doesn't have an ATX power connector, but a single jack for 19V DC. Use a Carnetix P1900 power supply, which has an integrated startup/shutdown controller.

    Debating myself if to get one of these machines or not, if anyone knows the answer to the OP's question or even better still have an Eee Box themselves and can take some internal photo's it would be much appreciated.

    Quite honestly, i thought manufacturers had moved away from the power brick with the small for factor desktops, which is why i didnt bother checking out the eeepc in the beginning.

    I too would also like to see some internal photos and hear a few comments on users that have these cool looking little boxes.

    I am running an EeeBox in my car at teh moment. Works perfectly to be honest. One thing you need to do is update teh bios to allow the auto power on feature. Once this is enabled your laughing as the unit is very small and dosent give out much heat at all.

    @Alexstein -

    Is the eeeBox quick or does it lag at times?

    Also, what PSU did you use and how did you connect it? Does it have a normal PSU connection??

    Thanks!
