Ion LE-powered AspireRevo available stateside for $200

Rememeber the Acer AspireRevo? The nettop was the first to pair Intel's Atom processor with Nvidia's Ion graphics, but it's been a little hard to find in the U.S. since launch. Good news, though: Newegg is now selling it for a cool $199.99.

The AspireRevo variant on sale has a single-core Atom 230 processor, Ion LE graphics with HDMI out, 1GB of RAM, 160GB of 5,400-RPM mechanical storage, Windows XP Home, and a USB keyboard and mouse. Unlike the regular Ion chipset, the "LE" variant should lack DirectX 10 support. It's not like you'd be running graphically intensive DirectX 10 games on this thing to begin with, though—the single-core Atom acts as a pretty big bottleneck, and Ion isn't that powerful, either.

You also won't find either Wi-Fi or Bluetooth built into this system. Acer does offer a Gigabit Ethernet port, though, and the AspireRevo's PCI Express Mini slot should let you add a Wi-Fi card of your choice. Check out our original story on the AspireRevo for photos and extra details. (Thanks to CrunchGear for the tip.)
