Yesterday I was griping about how tiny desktop computers (nettops) often lack optical disc drives (although you could almost overlook that thanks to the low price tags and moderate performance offered by these little guys). Today a reader brought a tiny desktop to my attention that addresses that oversight quite nicely — although I’m sure it’s going to be much more expensive than your typical nettop.

The ASRock Vision 3D 135B is a 7.9″ x 7.9″ x 2.8 mini-desktop computer. Inside that small case there’s an Intel Core i3-370M CPU< NVIDIA GeForce GT425M graphics with NVIDIA’s 3D Vision capabilities, a Blu-ray combo drive, 4GB of DDR3 memory, a 500GB, 7200RPM hard drive, and 7.1 channel audio.

The computer comes with a media center remote control and has HDMI and DVI output, 3 USB 3.0 ports and 5 USB 2.0 ports, 802.11b/g/n WiFi Ethernet, mic and headphone jacks, and ships either Windows 7 or Windows Vista.

It’s all kinds of awesome, but there’s no word on the price yet… and I’m kind of scared to find out how much it will cost.

thanks Patrick!

  1. I can not see any mention of TV Tuna here? This would be a real pity as the lack of this makes this otherwise very interesting unit.. kinda pointless.

  2. Yeah the price will probably be the only downside but this will be a good replacement for a normal desktop for most people.

  3. Looks very nice, but not sure how the aesthetics will be helped by my inevitably cack-handed sawing of a hole in the front for an LCD display. After having a PVR with a text display, any so-called media PC without one won’t cut it for me. Since the demise of the 4TV EPG on our PVR I am actively looking to replace it with a PC-based solution, so shame.
