This nettop from Zotac is a bare bone DIY system that will require: memory, hard drive and OS. At an estimated $260.00 US, it will be nearly $500 once you’re done adding a hard drive, memory chip and Windows 7 Home Premium. Wow.
Aside from the cost, the New HD-ID11 is one of the first units to be released using the Nvidia ION next gen video chipset with 16 graphics cores. It also includes the Intel Atom D510 Pine Trail dual core processor, HDMI & DVI outputs, 1 eSata, 6 USB 2.0 ports, audio in/outputs and a 6-in-1 memory card reader.
Seems like a nice step forward for the Atom ION combo and I’d be interested in testing this unit. Asus is due to also put out the EeeBox 1501p that will have the same hardware. Both are not available in the USA just yet, but are due out soon.
Below is a video with the unboxing of the unit in the UK and the install of the ram and SSD hard drive. Along with an XBMC installation promo.
