ASRock nettops with Ion GPUs now on Amazon
ASRock's ION 330Pro nettop PC is now available for pre-order on Amazon, along with a version that has a Wi-Fi connection and another that also adds a Blu-ray drive. All ION 330 systems are capable of playing back 1080p high-definition video content thanks to the Ion GPU from NVIDIA. For conventional processing power, the systems build in a 1.6GHz dual-core Atom chip.
Other common features include a 320GB hard drive and 2GB of DDR3 RAM. Whether or not an operating system is included is not known, as one isn't indicated in the specs either on the Amazon page or the ASRock's product page. The latter does show that a media center remote control is included, and that there is a second empty 2.5-inch drive bay that can be outfitted with a drive set up in a RAID 1 or 0 configuration. Connections include HDMI, VGA, six USB 2.0 ports, an optical audio output and a combo eSATA/USB port.
The Wi-Fi-less 330Pro is priced at $423, the Wi-Fi equipped model at $459 and the Blu-ray version at $589. Exactly when the systems will ship is not specified. [via SlashGear]
