The first small-form PC to utilize Nvidia’s Ion platform (the combination of an Nvidia GPU and Intel Atom processor) is the Acer AspireRevo. Priced about US$300, it boasts HD output, 4GB RAM and up to 250GB of storage. It’s going to be marketed the same way netbooks were, as low cost secondary machines, but expect some wild claims that it will handle gaming and HD content just fine. We’re not sure about that – the Atom chip is the N230 which can’t decode 1080p. Still, that doesn’t stop you installing a few emulators, plugging it into your TV and running it as a cheap media centre/retro gaming console.
