Asus made the Eee Box tiny PC official at the end of June. Asus promises with Express Gate technology to be in 7s in the Internet from boot up in Microsoft Windows XP Home. LaptopMag had a chance to play with the Eee Box and put Express Gate to the test.

Quote: "When you first press the power button on the Eee PC it takes 11 seconds (4 more seconds than the Voodoo Envy) to launch the main page ExpressGate Splashtop page. This start page has four buttons across the page, including browser, photo viewer, Pidgin chat and Skype shortcuts. You have to click on one of those buttons to enter the real ExpressGate environment. In our testing, when we clicked on the browser button, it took an additional 25 (15 seconds more than the Voodoo Envy) seconds to launch the complete ExpressGate mode and the FireFox browser."
