With all the talk of Google and Apple products for home TVs, nettops are getting pushed to the side. The fact that they're getting more powerful while staying affordable, though, continues to make them a serious contender for your home entertainment dollar. Take this Habey ENT-6564 nettop computer, for instance.
Running Intel's latest D510 processor (1.66GHz dual cores) and Nvidia Ion 2 graphics, it claims to do 2,560 x 1,600 video output over HDMI, making handling measly 1080p resolution videos as easy as hating on Mel Gibson. Heck, it does triple Flash video playback on the YouTube video below with spare computing muscle to boot.
Aiding the processor and graphics chip are 2GB of RAM, 512MB of dedicated video RAM and 250GB of onboard storage. Other Habey ENT-6564 features include HD audio, independent dual displays (one HDMI, one VGA), four USB ports, one eSATA port, ethernet port and a mini-PCIe slot with a WiFi card pre-installed.
It measures a mere 7.5 x 6 x 1 inches, making it easy to find a place for on any TV or monitor rack setup. We're not sure what OS it comes with, but Habey says it supports all of the following: Windows XP Embedded, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Linux and Windows 7 Embedded.
Amazon has the Habey ENT-6564 listed for a reasonable-sounding $329.
