Unlike the Zino, Viewsonic has opted to stick with an Intel CPU. The VOT models include a 2.2GHz Core2 T6600 processor running on the Intel GM45 + ICH9M chipset. The VOT530 bundles 2GB DDR2 memory, a 320GB 2.5″ SATA hard drive, and a DVD-burner while the VOT550 gets bumped to 4GB DDR2, a 500GB hard drive, and a Blu-ray/DVD-burner combo drive.
Both run Windows 7 home premium and have one serious shortcoming: lack of an HDMI port. Even with Intel graphics on the VOTs, I’d still expect a box like this to include single-cable hookup to a desktop monitor or HDTV.
