According to the blogger Yersys, this is the first Asus nettop to use the Ion (GeForce 9400M) platform. The specifications seem very complete to me. Is anyone missing something?

I think I'll be very interested to see it reviewed here. What do you think Mike?

Wow.

Could be a very competant little machine for use as a media pc.

Just add a USB TV tuner or two and a USB media centre keyboard and remote and bobs your uncle.

Great that it supports HD video with such a small form factor.

Wonder what the prices are like?

Phil

Glad you're interested too. This source says the price is ~€289 for units sold in Hong Kong. Not sure if that's the RRP or street price.

Would definitely be interested in its acoustics if anyone gives on a try.

I am starting to get very interested in these little ION boxes now that Nvidia and Adobe have found a solution for GPU acceleration for streaming flash video. These are soon going to be the perfect little HTPC/Hulu boxes. Put a USB TV tuner and you are set for about $300.
