Viewsonic VOT 130/132 and VOT 120/121 nettops get video demos

Of Viewsonic's new ULV lineup from last week it was the nettops that prompted the most interest.  The Viewsonic VOT 130 and 132 (on the left) and the Viewsonic VOT 120 and 121 (on the right) offer such notable features as NVIDIA Ion (in the VOT 132), a magnetically-attached DVD drive (the 13x models) and 1.3GHz CULV processor (the VOT 121).  NetbookNews stopped by for a couple of video hands-on demos with the nettops.

Acer & ASUS delay Android netbooks; freeze launches until Pine Trail in Q1 2010

Acer and ASUS are tipped to have frozen new netbook launches in the second half of 2009, in response to Intel's decision to postpone the launch of the Pine Trail-M platform - of which the Atom N450 processor is a part - until Q1 2010.  As part of that, Acer's dual-booting Android/Windows XP netbook has been postponed with no known launch date; the netbook, first shown in prototype form at Computex in June, was most recently expected to arrive in August.

Acer Aspire Revo Ion nettop gets Atom 330 dual-core

Acer's NVIDIA Ion toting Aspire Revo nettop is getting a much-needed processor bump, with the company swapping out the breathless single-core Atom 230 CPU for its dual-core Atom 330 counterpart.  The compact nettop also gets more memory and bigger hard-drives, the former doubling to 4GB and the latter offering either 320GB or 500GB.

Viewsonic VOT 132 NVIDIA Ion nettop heads new product range

Viewsonic VOT 132 NVIDIA Ion nettop heads new product range

What the world needs now, sang Viewsonic, is Ion, sweet Ion, and so they gave us this.  The Viewsonic VOT 130/132 nettop may look like a pale VHS cassette but it's actually one of the items in the company's new product range, accompanied by two other compact desktops, two netbooks and a PMP.  Of the lot, though, it's the VOT 130/132 that's most interesting, having as it does optional NVIDIA Ion graphics.

Intel Pine Trail nettop chips, plus Core i3 and Core i9 CPUs coming Q1 2010?

Intel Pine Trail nettop chips, plus Core i3 and Core i9 CPUs coming Q1 2010?

After word slipped out from Taiwan earlier this week that Intel were considering pushing back the release of the Pine Trail Atom N450 processor until the first half of 2010, now comes more specific news from PC manufacturers that both the netbook platform, Pine Trail-M, and its Pine Trail-D nettop sibling will both now arrive in the first quarter of next year.  That, say the unnamed sources, will coincide with the release of Intel's 32nm Core i9 processors, codenamed Gulftown, and offering six cores.

Intel Pine Trail Atom N450 delayed to 1H10?

Intel's Pine Trail platform, set to replace the company's current Diamondville netbook/nettop architecture, could be delayed until the first half of 2010 so as to reassure vendors.  According to Digitimes Research senior analyst Joanne Chien, the Intel Atom N450 processor has been pushed back from its original Q4 2009 launch schedule so as to allow the existing netbook market to settle.

eMachines EZ1601-01 all-in-one: N270 in a desktop casing

eMachines EZ1601-01 all-in-one: N270 in a desktop casing

Acer subsidiary eMachines have released another all-in-one desktop PC, the EZ1601-01, promising "high-style" for a budget price of just $399.99.  Stylish it may (arguably) be, but the EZ1601-01 isn't likely to set any desks aflame; inside the gloss-black casing lurks an Intel Atom N270 1.6GHz processor, paired with 1GB of RAM and a 160GB hard-drive.

Acer Veriton N260G nettop adds N280 but drops NVIDIA Ion

Acer Veriton N260G nettop adds N280 but drops NVIDIA Ion

In a deeply frustrating move, Acer have released a new version of their Atom-based nettop, addressing one of the key issues we had with the first-gen AspireRevo but then scuppering it in another way.  The Acer Veriton N260G switches the original AspireRevo's mediocre 1.6GHz Atom 230 or 330 processor for a far more welcome 1.66GHz Atom N280, but simultaneously drops the NVIDIA Ion GPU we so admired.

EMTEC G-Box nettop: Ion, they say, but no HDMI

EMTEC G-Box nettop: Ion, they say, but no HDMI

Eagle-eyed nettop watchers will note that we've already seen EMTEC's G-Box quite a few times here on SlashGear, albeit wearing different branding.  Based on Pegatron's reference design, EMTEC say the the G-Box uses NVIDIA's Ion graphics chipset, which would suggest it's a version of the Cape 7, but the VGA rather than HDMI port is more like the lower-powered Ultra Slim.

ASUS Windows 7 Upgrade Program is light on Eee PCs [Updated]

Earlier in the month we heard that Atom N270 based netbooks and nettops would be unlikely candidates for inclusion in the Windows 7 Upgrade Program, and that's looking to indeed be the case.  ASUS have announced details of their program, including which models will be eligible, and only two of the company's sprawling Eee PC netbook line are included: the 1101HA and the 1005HA.
