In with the Acer Aspire Revo and Lenovo IdeaPad S12 we already know about, Nvidia highlighted a few other devices built around Ion, including 1080p capable all-in-one systems from MSI and Asus (pictured above) as well as a range of nettops and netbooks from Asian ODMs. Rumors today also point to Ion-based computers from both HP and Dell in the third quarter of this year, according to DigiTimes.
Nvidia also flaunted twelve new mobile internet devices (MIDs) based on the Tegra chip; its system-on-a-chip solution that incorporates an ARM core, a graphics processing unit, a media processor and system memory. The devices, which included both netbooks and tablets, feature up to 1080p HD video together with always-on operation and supposedly up to five times the battery life of current netbooks. The main drawback is that they run on the embedded Windows CE operating system which is not compatible with most PC software.
