A net top is a net book (the one word net-book is trademarkd) but for the desktop. They are small form factor desktop computers that are very capable. Some people integrate these small form factor computers into their cars for audio/video duties. But rarely do I get excited about a new platform. The last one was the Intel Core i7. I’ve been disappointed due to it’s high price and only Dell offers it. Long story…
Anyways, the other day, I was researching Dual Core Atom based desktops. The dual core CPU might give that extra oomph that I’ve been looking for. Nvidia is planning on releasing their new ION platform. Basically it’s a 4 inch by 3 inch motherboard that has an Intel Atom CPU and an Nvidia 9400 M GPU. I’ll post more details when I find out, but here are some specs and pics.
