MAG "everywhere PC" comes in November

Zotac has announced its first nettop based on Nvidia's ION chipset and Intel Atom CPU, the MAG "everywhere PC". This small and rather neat looking nettop will be available in two versions, one with the Atom 230 single-core CPU and the other with the Atom 330 dual-core CPU. We were told that Zotac will rather focus its attention on the dual-core version, which is a good thing, while the single-core one should come a later date.

The rest of the MAG specs include 2GB of memory, 160GB hard drive and of course Nvidia's 9400M GPU. All of this is packed in a rather neat looking black glossy case measuring 186x189x38mm (LxWxH). The MAG is also packed with almost every output and input that you might want on a home based nettop so it features Gigabit LAN, 802.11bgn WiFi, 7.1-channel audio, eSATA port, 4-in-1 card reader, a total of six USB 2.0 ports, as well as the HDMI and D-Sub output.

The MAG can be used with a stand or can be mounted on the back of the monitor or on the wall. The MAG will be shipped with a VESA mount as well as it own stand, but the operating system will not be included. This has its good and bad sides, as some will appreciate the fact that they can use the OS of their own choice, but others might find it quite annoying as they need to get and install the OS by themselves.

We even managed to get some info about the price and the availability date of the MAG, and according to what we have heard, the 330 dual-core version will have a price tag of around €249 and should be available in Europe, or to be exact in the DACH market, at the beginning of November. The single-core version should come at a later date and will, of course, be cheaper.
