AOpen XC Mini GP7A-HD nettop eschews Atom for Core 2 Duo & NVIDIA Ion

AOpen XC Mini GP7A-HD nettop eschews Atom for Core 2 Duo & NVIDIA Ion

AOpen have outed their latest nettop, but whereas we're used to apologetic Atom processors holding us back, the AOpen XC Mini GP7A-HD takes regular Core 2 Duo CPUs instead.  The barebones kit also packs NVIDIA's Ion graphics chipset, which adds up to Full HD performance and a machine that could actually do a little gaming on your big-screen TV.

Otherwise there's a DVD burner, two DDR3 memory slots (4GB max, though it's unclear if that's per-slot or overall) and a 2.5-inch HDD bay.  Connectivity includes HDMI and VGA outputs (which will work simultaneously), together with gigabit ethernet, six USB 2.0 ports, eSATA, audio in/out and a 6-in-1 memory card reader.  There's no standard wireless connection, but two empty PCI Express Mini Card slots inside are enough for both a WiFi b/g/n card and a TV tuner if you should so wish.

ASUS Eee Top ET2002T and ET2203T getting October 22nd release

ASUS's Eee Top ET2002T and ET2203T all-in-one nettops may have been confirmed for the US since August, but it's taken the company a little while longer to discuss plants for them in the UK.  Now seems as good a time as any to revisit what you get from either a 20- or 21.6-inch nettop, based on Intel's Atom dual-core 330 in the case of the smaller machine, or a choice of Intel Core 2 Duo chips in the larger.
