    Hi Guys,

    I need a basic nettop preferably with dual core ATOM chip, but I want to connect my Sound Blaster X-Fi which uses PCI-E x1 slot into it. Is there any nettop or mini computer available in which I can do it?

    Yes I know I could buy mini ITX board and case...but I want it to be free of this hassle..i will do it in case i don't find one...

    Regards,

    I'm pretty sure you can't find anything. Nettops (at least the ones I've seen) tends to use very sleek cases already crammed full with stuff. Someone else might know of something, but don't get your hopes up.

    Found one actually, but it's an older version (looks pretty good though):

    Compaq CQ2009F.

    Correct, do an ITX build if you want something like this.
