The Acer AspireRevo is the first computer shipping to use the NVIDIA Ion platform which pairs an Intel Atom CPU with an NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics processor. I mean, sure… it’s not shipping in the US yet. But it is available in Germany, where Johannes from got a chance to pick one up and post some unboxing photos.

The ION platform provides enhanced graphics performance for watching HD video, decoding Blu-Ray discs, or playing some video games. NVIDIA promises that additional companies will begin releasing computers built around the platform in the coming months. There’s a rumor going around that Asus and MSI will not be among them. But I’m hoping at some point we’ll see a company decide to use the ION chipset in a netbook to help differentiate their mini-laptop from the sea of computers with the same specs. Because I’m getting really tired of typing “1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 CPU, 1024 x 600 pixel screen, 1GB of RAM, and 160GB hard drive. “

  1. Add an acronym to the language –
    OMOS – One More Of the Same – –
    Like describing a jelly bean in a jar of jelly beans –
    JBNB – Jelly Bean Net Book or JB – JellyBook.

  2. Not only are you getting tired of typing those specs, but I think we’re all getting tired of reading them lol

    I’d really like to see a 10-11 inch netbook with a higher resolution, the Nvidia ION, and possibly even one of the dual core Atom processors (one of the Nvidia ION nettops is going to have dual-core, so why not the netbooks?). I think this is the kind of netbook we’re all wanting to see honestly.

    Once a device similar to what I described comes out, I’ll buy it in a heartbeat. That’s what I’ve been waiting on to be released.

  3. This is a great step in the right direction. It’s taking longer than I thought it would but slowly and surely the commoditized, small PC is taking over the world…
