HP intros mini-Q nettops

HP recently used an event in Taiwan to unveil its first-ever nettop PC, the mini-Q 2030, that is powered by Intel's 1.6GHz dual-core Atom 330 processor and 2GB of DDR2 RAM. Other hardware includes a 160GB 7,200rpm SATA hard-drive with Windows Vista preloaded and a dual-layer DVD burner. It also has four USB 2.0 ports, two PS/2 ports, an Ethernet port, a VGA jack for connecting to monitors and an audio and microphone jack.

The mini-Q weighs in a maximum of just 4.4lbs and does not include a monitor or any peripherals. Along with the mini-Q 2030, HP also showed the mini-Q 2020 which sports the single-core Atom 230 rated at the same 1.6GHz, half the RAM at 1GB and the older Windows XP OS.

The HP mini-Q 2030 will be available in Taiwan for the equivalent of around $386 while the HP mini-Q 2020, will cost about $296. There is no official information on if or when the nettops will be available in North America. [via Slashgear]
