Soon after ASRock came out with an NVIDIA Ion-based nettop PC, Point of View announced its own nettop based on NVIDIA's Ion platform.
Next to the ION motherboard announcment, POV now also will offer a Nettop. Like the earlier Ion nettop this one offers option of single core as well as dual core version of Intel's Atom processor. Other features include 2GB of DDR2 memory, 160GB SATA hard drive, an integrated slim DVD Burner, 8x USB 2.0 ports, Gigabit Ethernet, a 60W power supply, DVI, HDMI and VGA outputs. No word on pricing.
The system is ready to provide users with a choice for a single-core Atom 230 or a dual-core Atom 330 processor. Based on the MCP7A-ION chipset, the mini PC comes with support for 2GB of DDR2 memory, a 160GB SATA hard drive, an integrated slim-line DVD-RW, 8 USB 2.0 ports, Gigabit Ethernet, a 60W power supply, DVI, HDMI and VGA outputs and an M-ITX form factor. The system measures 185x250x70mm and features a rather plain design.
The company will launch two motherboards, featuring the ION chipset. The difference between the two is that one will be featured with the single-core Atom 230 processor, while the other will be powered by the dual-core Atom 330. Additional features include support for a maximum of 2GB of DDR2 memory, a PCI-Express x16 slot, four SATA ports, a Realtek ALC662 5.1-channel audio chip, optical SPDIF output, six USB ports, DVI, HDMI and D-Sub connectivity, Gigabit LAN and a 24-pin power connector.
There aren't any details on the pricing and availability of the Point of View ION Mini PC.
