Acer Hornet Nettop Leak

Acer is planning a nettop of its own that would occupy the high end of its market, if a set of leaked presentation slides from Turkish site Donanimhaber are accurate. The Hornet would have a highly stylized blue case but would center around its use of NVIDIA's Ion platform, which would let it play 1080p video and more modern games while still using either a single- or dual-core Atom processor. It would also come with a Wii-like remote that could be used either for games that support the motion-sensitive feature or else just as an airborne mouse for the living room or meetings.

While most other details aren't available, the system would be VESA mountable on the back of a computer LCD display and would have HDMI output for its very likely home theater role. Ship dates aren't mentioned, but the first Ion systems are due in the spring. The presentation also alludes to the system having a price near $200.
