Graphics card maker Sapphire has released its first desktop computer, the Sapphire Mini PC Edge-HD. As you’d expect from a company with Sapphire’s pedigree, the Edge-HD has a focus on high performance graphics. But honestly, that doesn’t set it apart from most other nettops on the market today, since it has the increasingly common NVIDIA ION 2 graphics card bundled with a low power 1.66 GHz Intel Atom D510 dual core processor.
The nettop packs a 250GB 2.5 inch hard drive, 2G of DDR2 memory, HDMI and VGA ports, 4 USB 2.0 ports, audio jacks, and 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet. It also comes with 802.11b/g/n WiFi.
The computer comes with FreeDOS preloaded but supports Windows XP through Windows 7 (or Linux or just about any other OS you’d probably care to throw on it).
The computer is expected to run about $300, and that price seems to include 1GB USB flash drive with drivers as well as an HDMI cable, HDMI to DVI adapter and a stand.
