A small HTPC box
The guys from Gizmodo managed to score some pictures of Dell's Inspiron Zino HD, a small HTPC box that is yet to show its insides to the world.
We must admit that it looks kinda nice, and we are guessing that it has something to do with Nvidia and its ION platform, but it's still too early to confirm anything. The little thing is called Zino HD and will be a part of Dell's Inspiron line of products, and as guys from Gizmodo stated, it would not have an HDMI port and it would not be called Zino HD if it does not have something to do with HD video.
The only specs that are known so far, are that it has four USB ports, two on the back and two on the front, a card reader, an HDMI output, two eSATA ports, LAN port, and audio ports. It looks a bit too shiny with all that gloss but we guess that this is what you want if you plan to stick it in your living room.
Intel's Atom in combination with Nvidia's Atom can get the job done, but we guess that Dell can still surprise us.
