NVIDIA Ion HPs, Dells due

Computer makers HP and Dell will both launch netbooks and all-in-one desktop PCs running on NVIDIA's Ion platform sometime between the start of July and the end of September, says a Tuesday Digitimes report. The unnamed industry sources claim the two manufacturers will join ASUS, Foxconn, Lenovo and Pegatron in providing Ion-based computers, all of which have been linked earlier to the hybrid graphics and system chipset. Models and their features aren't mentioned in the slip.

The same report has Intel reducing its price incentives to PC vendors who are considering Ion-based products and is more closely monitoring the inventory flow of their Atom CPUs in an effort to keep them from dumping purchased chipsets just to get discounts on Atoms. NVIDIA has already accused Intel of anti-competitive behavior by pricing Atom and chipset bundles in such a way as to punish PC builders with much higher costs for using an Ion chipset instead of Intel's option.
