    Even if it was around $200 your getting a lot of functionality, i mean it does include the CPU, a decent GPU Wifi and all the normal I/O on a tiny tiny motherboard. You always do pay premium for miniaturization.

    Has the ion platform prooved to be better on power than intels archaic one?

    Couldnt agree more, i think the ion uses a few more watts but you doo get alot more performance so its worth the small compromise, although i cant see it making any difference in the desktop market.

    i can see it making quite a difference in HTPCs.
    Something like this would be pretty portable too so it would be handy for me when im out doing visuals as i could use it as media storage and a back up machine.

    Look fantastic for a HTPC, makes my low profile uATX HTPC look massive!!!

    I also noticed that play.com have dropped the price on the most basic Acer Revo to £165 and its not even out yet. All thats required is a USB DVB-T tuner. Not sure what space, if any there is inside for a HDD though.

    If Hexus is gonna copy other sites stories (which everyone does) at least give the whole story or link to the source report

    Pricing on the source story says $200-off for the single core and $300 for dual core Atom. Quite why an extra $100 for dual core is beyond me. How much extra does Intel charge for a dual core Atom 330? Not $100 for sure...
