AOpen miniPC Duo MP965-VDR
AOpen has taken a unique approach to Santa Rosa, deciding to implement it in a new desktop system, rather than the laptops it was intended for. The miniPC Duo MP965-VDR is shaped like a smaller Media Center PC, and combines the new Core 2 Duos (using 800MHz front-side buses) with GM965 motherboards, which rely on internal graphics. Buyers must opt for some of the lesser Santa Rosa features, such as Bluetooth, 802.11n and Intel Turbo Memory. Analog and digital TV support can be added as well. Further details remain hazy, including release dates, but the computer should be loaded with Vista Home Premium.
