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.
