acer hornet

Leaked info is flowing for Acer‘s Hornet nettop, to the point that we know enough to genuinely get excited. The home theater PC supports 1080p playback over HDMI, running on Intel’s Atom N230 processor. The basic model will pack 1 GB of RAM, a 80 GB hard drive and Vista Home Basic, while both the “Deluxe” and “Media Center” models will include 2 GB of RAM, 120 GB of storage, Vista Home Premium and a “Boxshell” quickboot user interface. Only the deluxe model will include Wi-Fi, a wireless keyboard and the funky controller you see above, for all those motion-sensing PC games you’ve been dying to play. The Hornet will reportedly launch in China next week for less than $299, but exact pricing and overseas release dates are unknown.  [via Engadget and DigiTimes]
