Ever since NVIDIA's original ION chipset proved it was possible to pair Intel's low-power Atom processor to a relatively powerful graphics core and attain acceptable multimedia performance, the market has been curious as to what NVIDIA's Ion 2 Next-Generation Ion product might offer. This has also been a topic of some discussion between Intel, NVIDIA, and the FTC. Because Intel's next-generation Atom platform is a system-on-chip (SoC), NVIDIA had to adjust its own plans for NG-Ion.NVIDIA ION 2 Preview, Optimus Enabled... Read more...

Shuttle is primarily known in the PC industry for their small form factor (SFF) PCs. These tiny boxes are still mighty potent, and they're usually geared towards LAN party gamers who don't want to be bothered with taking their full-size rigs on the road. But as with most every other computer maker, Shuttle is evolving, and as the demands shift, production shifts as well. Announced this week is an all new form factor from Shuttle, one that looks nothing like the rectangular gamer boxes that have made them famous. The Shuttle Barebone XS35 is just 3.3cm thick, making it small enough for just about... Read more...
Windows has long dominated the desktop and notebook scene; even today, the Microsoft-built operating system holds over 90% of the market share for PCs globally. Nearly 9 out of every 10 computers in the entire world run on some form of Windows, which means that there isn't too much space left for the "other guys" to fight it out.Apple currently holds between 5% and 6% of the share, while a great variety of lesser-known systems hold down the rest. Linux is a big name in the tech enthusiast circle, but outside of that, not too many people give it a fighting chance. Good for you, though, because you're... Read more...
The International Consumer Electronics Show is upon us, and that means new kit from every direction will be flowing our way. MSI is a big player in the motherboard, desktop and notebook space, so it makes sense to hear that it'll also be using the show to showcase new gear. One previously unmentioned machine that'll be making its debut in Las Vegas is the Wind Top AP1920, an all-in-one PC that goes easy on the power suckage, measures just 35mm deep and sports an 18.5" display. It will also use Intel's new Pinetrail platform with an Atom D510/D410 CPU. Other new machines in attendance will be the... Read more...
The market for nettops-small, highly-integrated, mini-ITX desktops, typically based around Intel's Atom-didn't explode off the block the way netbooks did in the past 18 months, but an increasing number of manufacturers from Acer to Dell have released new designs built around the standard, and the systems in question are steadily becoming more powerful. Zotac is no stranger to the mini-ITX market, but the company's line of mini-PCs aims to provide more than just a motherboard. Zotac now has two complete systems on the market-the HD-NS01 (Atom 270, 1GB RAM) and the HD-ND01 (Atom 330, 2GB RAM). We'll... Read more...

Dell's pulling out all of the stops as it rolls into the holiday season of 2009, first with the Adamo XPS and now with the most powerful mini PC we've ever seen. The Inspiron Zino HD is small in stature but remarkably powerful, with options for up to 8GB of RAM, 1TB of hard drive space, a Blu-ray drive, TV tuner and HDMI out. The measurements are right at 7.75" x 7.75" x 3.5", and while it starts at just $229, things can get pricey if you start piling on the extras.

Quiz time: do you recall that nettop that Lenovo announced just over a month ago? We'll give you three guesses, just as long as your first one involved "Q100." That's right--the IdeaCentre Q100, Q110 and Q700 are all now on sale directly from Lenovo, and if you've been in the market for a small, compact and stylish PC to do little more than sip power and surf the wild, wild web, this just might be the one.The Q100 Mini PC gets started at just $299, and that includes an Intel Atom CPU, Windows XP Home, up to 160GB of hard drive space, 1GB of DDR2 memory, a VGA port and a chassis that measures just...

Two days ago, HP let loose with a blitzkrieg of new products, including new laptops, netbooks, and even a new all-in-one desktop PC. The company, however, didn't use up all of its ammunition, as it waited two more days--until today--to launch its final salvo of new product announcements for the fall. And considering that today's product announcement represents a brand-new product category for HP, it makes sense that HP would put a little bit of time between its other announcements and this one, so that this new product wouldn't get lost in the shuffle.Today's product announcement is about the new...

It's hard to say at this point if nettops will ever become as popular as netbooks, but if Acer has anything to say about it, they'll come close. The planet's third largest PC vendor has today introduced its new Veriton N260G-U2802CP, a product that sounds like it's straight out of a Transformers movie. The ultra-compact nettop is aimed specifically at the US professional market, but it should mount just fine on any LCD that's hungry for some attention. The device is housed in a one-liter chassis and can be placed upright or laid flat, and it's retractable stand and VESA mounting abilities should... Read more...
Lenovo has announced a new series of systems today, each of which is aimed at a different aspect of the digital home. Said home is seen as a virtual goldmine for any company that can put its finger squarely on the pulse of what consumers want, and Lenovo thinks it has a winning combination. Fresh out of the launch bay we have Lenovo's first Home Theater PC (HTPC), the IdeaCentre Q700, the D400 storage server, and the IdeaCentre Q100 and Q110 nettops. The concept of a single-point home storage server has a certain universal appeal to any techie, so let's start there.Lenovo's D400: Atom-powered StorageWithout... Read more...
