ION gets stuck in a vase
Elitegroup molds porcelain HTPC
Nvidia's ION seems to be doing quite well. Not only has it landed design wins from the likes of HP, Dell, Acer, MSI and Asus, but it has also found its way into a porcelain vase.
Elitegroup has squeezed a rather well spec'd HTPC into a very interesting chassis, if you can call it that. Underneath the blue and white porcelain skin you'll find an Atom 230, ION graphics, 2.5-inch hard drive, and it's even got room for a slim optical drive.
The power button is located at the top, so forget about using it for flowers. You'll also find 2 USB ports and one LAN connector under a flap, and HDMI out comes out of the bottom. Neat. In case your spouse isn't thrilled about getting new hardware, this could be the thing for you. However, in case your spouse tends to throw stuff at you when you get into a fight, you might want to think again.
