    nVidia Ion @ Ars Technica

    TechReport Reviews Ion Platform from nVidia

    I thought this was a interesting development from nVidia as we've seen some SFF PCs in the past from names like MSI and ASUS, but I didn't expect one from nVidia. Not so soon anyways since I was expecting one with a SoC chip.

    It's a good read and I like how they mated the Atom 330 with a 9400M chipset. This thing should be capable of HD playback with a capable BR drive or video file.

    I can't wait to see the pricing on one of these. Would make a perfect HTPC for the crowded rack in the living room. :)

    Some very exciting news!

    The Ion is said to be shipping in the spring! Source

    It will be a nettop, though, and not a netbook, but it offers some nice possibilities for those of you thinking about a HTPC or a streaming HTPC.

      Some time in the spring, I'll be due to build another HTPC box. Primarily because I'm leaving my DVR with my parents, and just adding the HD tuner to it when I get the cash.

      I'll keep my eyes open, including for this device. I may simply buy something like it instead of buying another one, as I'd like to shy away from even an mATX platform to keep the size and heat down.
