Back in August we got our hands on the small ASRock ION330-BD nettop with a Blu-ray drive inside for a full review. We liked the little machine pretty well thanks to its low price and decent performance. ASRock has now announced a new updated version the nettop we played with offering more features called the ASRock ION330HT-BD.
The newly updated version of the machine we tested gets a few new features. The rig runs an Intel Atom 330 dual-core CPU at 1.6GHz and has 2GB of 8000MHz DDR2 RAM. The NVIDIA Ion graphics carry over and the machine has 500GB of storage and a second hard drive bay to make 1TB of storage available.
The machine ships with a MCE remote control and features built-in WiFi. The Blu-ray capability carries over and the nettop has eSATA and support for DTS 7.1 audio. You can also get the nettop minus the Blu-ray player and the lowest of the three versions of the updated machine lacks WiFi of the two other models.
