Xtreamer Ultra to come with Ion 2 for just $137
Xtreamer, maker of home theater devices such as an iPad dock with room for hard drives, has now introduced a portable budget home theater PC, the Xtreamer Ultra. Highlights of the small device include a dual-core, 1.8GHz Atom paired with NVIDIA's Ion 2 graphics processor and 4GB of DDR3 RAM. There are six USB ports, an HDMI and DVI output, eSATA port, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, gigabit Ethernet and an IR eye for the included remote control.
The HTPC will accommodate an internal 2.5-inch hard drive, though one isn't included and neither is an operating system. The Ultra will be shown off in eight days at the CeBIT show in Germany. Sales, however, are due to start in just two days.
