Stylish Ion2 nettop for HTPC

KNXDroid

Habey offers a stylish nVidia Ion2 based nettop just for $260! It sports Intel dual-core 1.66GHz Atom D510 processor and nVidia Ion2 graphic, which allows 1080p video playback. Also the nettop has two bays for 2.5″ HDDs, two mini PCI Express slots, HDMI port, VGA port, S/PDIF optical digital output, gigabit Ethernet, a few USB ports and internal COM one.

I like minimalistic design of Habey’s nettop and its price. But two things I don’t like when I’m thinking to use it as HTPC – lack built-in IR receiver and small fan on the GPU which should definitely makes noise. And while the first problem can be easily solved by using external IR receiver of RF remote control with USB dongle, the reduce noise will be very difficult.
