Atom-powered nettops are on the way from HP, too

— 10:29 AM on November 26, 2008

We've already taken a peek at compact "nettop" systems from both Asus and MSI. Now, Engadget Chinese has spotted a similar HP machine that bears the Compaq brand and includes a dual-core Atom processor.

Reportedly, HP itself demonstrated the Compaq Presario 2030 mini-Q nettop in Taiwan. The diminutive system has a 1.6GHz Intel Atom 330 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 160GB 7,200-RPM hard drive, a DVD burner, and a copy of Vista Home Basic. The asking price? $12,900 TWD, or just under $390.

According to Engadget Chinese, HP also announced a Presario 2020 system with more spartan specs—a single-core Atom 230, 1GB of RAM, Windows XP—and a price tag of just $9900 TWD ($297). Unlike the Asus nettops, these systems don't appear to be all-in-one designs. Perhaps HP will sell them with separate displays, though.
