ViewSonic Launches Nettop for "Green-Conscious" Users

Paul Lilly

We're not real accustomed to seeing nettops without an Intel Atom or VIA Nano CPU inside, but ViewSonic's latest low-power rig -- the VOT125 -- eschews both popular chips in favor of Intel's range of ultra lower power ULV processors.

Most probably won't have a problem with that so long as ViewSonic doesn't jack up the price way above what you'd expect to pay for a nettop. We'll let you be the judge of that - the cheapest model checks in at $499 and includes a single-core Celeron 743 processor, while the highest priced model runs $679 and includes an Intel Core 2 Duo SU7300 CPU.

Otherwise, the VOT125 is pretty much like any other nettop. It measures just 5.4 inches by 5.1 inches by 1.5 inches and comes with a VESA mount kit. The rest of the spec sheet consists of 2GB of RAM, a 250GB hard drive, four USB 2.0 ports, 3-in-1 memory card reader, DVI/HDMI outputs, Wi-Fi, Ethernet, and Intel GMA4500MHD graphics. And in addition to the two previously mentioned processors, the VOT125 also comes configurable with an Intel Celeron SU2300 ($529) or Pentium SU4100 ($629), both of which are dual-core parts.

No word yet on these will be available for purchase.
