    Valore Japan introduced the country's first nettop barebone equipped with a Blu Ray drive. Based on the NVIDIA ION platform, the Valore ION 330-DB packs Intel's Atom 330 1.60 GHz dual-core processor paired with the ION chipset with embedded GeForce 9400M graphics that makes it ready to serve as a compact HD-ready media center PC. Being a barebone, it requires you to separately purchase the memory (up to 4 GB of DDR2 800 MHz), and a 2.5 inch SATA hard drive or solid-state drive. Connectivity includes gigabit Ethernet and 6 USB 2.0 ports, while A/V IO includes HDMI out, and SPDIF digital audio. The star attraction of course is its Blu Ray drive + CD/DVD RW combo drive. Each of these go for 39800 JPY (297 Euro).

    hat,
    you are a genius - you should work in marketing! :nutkick:
    Only because I noticed it?

    Anyways, if they are just rebadging stuff, they can at least come up with a new name.
    Seriously...

    godzilla killed them off. its all good.



    This one may be japan only, but as has been mentioned its a rebrand - it'll likely appear outside japan under a variety of other brands, keep an eye out for one in your region.

    it can probably do that over HDMI, if you slap in a decent half height soundcard and hook it up internally (google how nvidia get HDMI audio working)

    Look for ASRock's Blu Ray ION nettop. It has identical specs, and will be available worldwide shortly. I'm sure ASRock is available in .sg

    as dumb as this sounds, but would a PS3 be a more powerful machine than this if you can get a real OS on the PS3?
