Ablecom Shows off HEC-13 Netttop ahead of Computex next week

Ablecom HEC-13 Nettop

Ablecom Technology is showing off their new HEC-13 nettop ahead of Computex next week. It’s powered by a Dual Core Intel atom 1.66GHz  D510 processor,  has integrated Intel GMA 3150 graphics, and up to 2GB of memory, and space for a 2.5 inch hard drive.

Design-wise, the case looks a bit like a massive heatsink, which would be cool, but we suspect it’s just plastic.  On the bright side, there are a ton of ports, 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.  There’s also support for 5.1 channel audio.

It seems like this will be sold as a barebone unit (meaning you add your own HDD and RAM), and there’s 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.  The nettop will be available with Windows XP or Linux, although it can also handle Windows 7.

No word on pricing or availability.
