  1. If you are looking for a low profile machine with decent performance for everyday tasks at an affordable price, Jetway may have just the thing for you. Their latest Mini Top nettop is a thin and small form factor machine packed with a dual-core Intel Atom D525 processor running at 1.8GHz and a next-generation Ion graphics chip from Nvidia.

    We just haven't had good luck with the Jetway, so be sure of your warranty, and that it is backed up by the seller as well.

    That sound very similar to Zotac Zbox.

    @burty:
    I don't know about UT3, but if its WoW you can run it on a 4 years under par netbook with Intel GMA 945 at 15-20+ fps, so if you want a compact machine for that, the Inovo seems a waste of money, rather than proper gaming PC.
     
  6. Is the nVidia Ion 2 the new amazing chip thats going into smart phones? Ultra low wattage and impressive performance? They were demoing the new Ion /w UT3 on smart phone type screens last I saw.

    Sorry to criticise a product but I have had to stop using Jetway boards because they all failed through 'fat caps' after about 18-24 months. It was doing my reputation as a system builder no good at all - I now use Asus or Gigabyte boards.

    You are probably thinking of the Tegra 2. The Ion is generally too big for the small mobile packages, and is targeted at netbooks and up. The Tegra is the ultra low power CPU/GPU package aimed at mobile devices, and has pretty stellar performance on those units.

    Thanks Vrmithrax, that was me. I appreciate the sound answer.
     
  10. Latest release now supports DDR3-1066 memory. Couple that with a Momentus XT hybrid drive and 4GB DDR3 memory too really motor economically. I've just order the parts to make a 64-bit Win7 Media Centre.
