The Compaq mini-Q 2030 and 2020

Although we've already seen Atom-based desktop systems, most of them so far have been from Taiwanese brands such as Asus and MSI, but now it seems like HP has jumped on the nettop bandwagon with two new Compaq mini-Q models.

The Presario 2030 and 2020 to be precise and the difference between the two is that the 2030 uses the dual-core Atom 330, while the 2020 gets the single-core Atom 230. The Presario 2030 will ship with Vista Home Basic and as such it will come with 2GB of DDR2 memory, a 160GB SATA hard drive, a DVD writer and a memory card reader.

The Presario 2020 will come with Windows XP Home, and as such it will only have 1GB of DDR2 memory, although the rest of the specs are meant to be similar. Price-wise, the Presario 2030 should cost around €299, while the 2020 will be cheaper at €229. In comparison, the Asus Eee Box is retailing in Taiwan for €208, although this system doesn't have an optical drive, although it's also a much smaller system and it's using an Atom N270 mobile processor.
