ASUS reveals Nova mini-PC

updated 03:05 pm EST, Thu November 29, 2007

ASUS Nova P22

ASUS today introduced one of its rare desktop systems. Called the Nova P22, the PC is aimed squarely at the micro-PC field of the Mac mini and effectively hides virtually all of the front desktops while sitting roughly two inches tall; it includes a slot-load optical drive and places virtually all input at the back. Unlike the mobile CPU of its Apple counterpart, the system is driven by a desktop 1.86GHz Core 2 Duo with a far faster 1.06GHz front side bus.

Most specifcations have been left out of the launch, though ASUS promises the Nova will sell for the equivalent of $1,019 in the company's home of Taiwan and is likely to bring the system to other countries in the future. A line of external add-ons will also be introduced to augment the compact PC, according to the company.
