Boxee Box will ship in November Boxee has announced this week that it will begin shipping its highly anticipated Boxee Box starting in November, after first unveiling the device last December.
Speaking to PCWorld, Boxee says the box will run on an Intel Atom CE4100 processor, different than the expected Nvidia Tegra 2. The company says the processor will still allow the box to handle 1080p flawlessly.

Additionally, the box will have both a wired and wireless 802.11n connection, a QWERTY keypad and come with an RF remote.

Boxee Box's software is very similar to Boxee on Windows/Mac, including a WebKit browser with Flash support.

The box is now available for pre-order on Amazon for $200.

Anyone ordering from Amazon will receive their box a week before other buyers, notes D-Link, the manufacturer of the box.

I don't see any advantage to this except it is cheap for a very weak media center pc. Yuk!
