VIA’s ARTiGO A1100 is the DIY Nettop

VIA Artigo A1100 Nettop DIY

Like Nettops and building your own PC?  Well, you’re in luck – says VIA.  The VIA ARTiGO A1100 is a neat little do-it-yourself nettop powered by VIA’s 1.2GHz  Nano processor and paired up with the VX855 media processor, which we know can handle 1080p video playback.  VGA and HDMI video outputs are standard (on the back) as well as gigabit Ethernet, five USB ports, and optional 802.11b/g. VIA is calling this the “smallest full featured PC kit available today” and we’re inclined to agree. At $243 ($199 if you’re one of the first 10 to order) it’s priced well t0o.

So how is it DIY?  Well, while the processor, pico-atx mainboard, chassis, and graphics processor, you’ll be on the hook for adding memory, a hard dive and an OS. Of course you can (and probably will want to) add wireless modules and card readers as well.
