ASUS planning Ion B1006 Eee Box; Acer cutting AO751, readying Instant-On

As you might expect, Computex brings with it not only official news but plenty of rumor, and the first netbook whispers suggest that the segment is growing increasingly competitive.  ASUS - when they're not slapping Qualcomm Snapdragon chipsets into Eee PCs - are tipped to be evaluating NVIDIA's Ion GPU for future products, according to industry sources, while they also suggest that the Eee Box B1006 nettop spotted on Friday will use Ion when it launches in Q3 2009.
