Viako’s Ion-equipped HTPC is more like an HD-capable nettop


Interesting looking box, and based on the more than capable ION platform (Flash content TBD).  I like the look of this small little chassis, but am curious what the display will be utilized for. Not a huge fan of the remote, but if it allows the unit to come at a low price, then I’m ok with that.



The Mini E series of HTPCs (or nettops, if you will) looks to be available in a variety of configurations, with the higher-end model snagging an Atom N330 processor, NVIDIA’s GeForce 9400M GPU, 2GB of RAM, a 320GB hard drive, integrated WiFi, VGA / DVI / HDMI outputs, Ethernet, plenty of USB sockets and audio / in ports. There’s no mention of price nor a stateside release date, but those in Seoul ought to find it in their local shops pretty soon.
