Zotac is updating its nettop lineup to add support for Intel’s latest Atom processor and NVIDIA’s next-generation ION graphics.

The Zotac Zbox HD-ID11 is the same size and shape as the earlier Zotac MAG nettop. But the new model features a 1.66GHz Atom D510 dual core processor and faster NVIDIA ION graphics.

It looks like the computer will be available as a barebones system, since there are no specs listed for memory, hard drive, or operating system options. But you do get a 2.5″ hard drive bay and  a single 200-pin DDR2-800 SODIMM slot. The computer also has 802.11b/g/n WiFi and 10/100/1000Mbps Ethernet.

The ION graphics processor has 512MB of dedicated memory and supports DirectX 10.1 and OpenGL 3.2.

The computer has 6 USB ports, HDMI and VGA output, and mic and headphone jacks. There’s also an eSATA port and flash card reader. The system comes with a VESA mount and a DVI to VGA adapter.

Probably one of the most unusual design elements is the fact that you can open the case without any tools. You simply need to remove two “thumb screws” to open the Zotac ZBOX HD-ID11 and insert RAM or a hard drive.

Update: Engadget reports that a barebones Zbox HD-ID11 will cost just $209.99.
