ion2 HTPC

Postposted on Sat Apr 17, 2010 11:53 am

There's some good nettops on the market with ion but with ion2 around the corner I'm wondering if I should buy an HTPC with the ion chipset now or wait for ion2 to be released.

Or does anyone know a good ion2 nettop, available today?

If you can pick up a nettop with an Atom 330 and Ion you will be very happy. Dual core 64-bit with 1080p playback.

Also been looking at the Dell Zino HD. Looks very good but is more expensive than an Atom 330. Choices eh? :wink:
