Ablecom Technology plans to showcase the HEC-13 Intel Atom powered nettop at Computex next week. Spec-wise, this little desktop PC looks like standard fare. It has a 1.66GHz Intel Atom D510 dual core processor, integrated Intel GMA 3150 graphics, and up to 2GB of memory, and a 2.5 inch hard drive bay.

But design-wise it’s… well, interesting. I can’t decide whether the lines along the outside of the lastic case are designed to be stylish or if there’s actually part of the nettop’s cooling system. I imagine it’s an acquired taste.

On the bright side, there are a ton of ports on this guy, including a total of 6 USB 2.0 ports, mic and headphonejacks both on the front and back, VGA output, a 10/100/1000 LAN port, and even 2 PS/2 connectors for a mouse and keyboard. The nettop also sports 6 channel audio.

There’s room for an optional WiFi module and you can plug in a WiFi antenna on the back of the unit. If you don’t need WiFi, you could use the Mini-PCIe slot for something else, I suppose.The nettop will be available with Windows XP or Linux, although it can also handle Windows 7.

No word on pricing or availability.

  1. I like the looks of it. Just not in the market for one right now.
