Sparkle shows its Calibre Cuti nettop

Intel Atom 330 and ION
Looking a bit different than the Calibre Cuti n30 which was shown at last year's Computex show, Sparkle has announced a new version of its Calibre Cuti ION nettop.
The new one features pretty much the same specifications as the n30 showed at Computex, but it looks a bit different. It comes with Intel's Atom 330 dual-core CPU combined with Nvidia's ION platform. It can be equipped with up to 4GB of memory, 160 or 320GB hard drive (supports up to 500GB), has integrated Geforce 9400 graphics, courtesy of ION, Gigabit LAN, 802.11bgn WiFi, optional Bluetooth, 7.1-channel audio, six USB ports, and a card reader.
As far as the outputs are concerned, Calibre Cuti has it all covered with DVI and HDMI with support for 1080p reproduction, thanks to the Nvidia Geforce 9400 GPU. According to Sparkle, the new Calibre Cuti consumes 30W under full load and 14W in idle, while the noise level is around 26dBA under full load and 3dBA in stand-by.
The price or the availability date haven't been announced yet, but we must note that Calibre Cuti does look neat. It will be available in white or black colour options and the minimalistic and simple design always works best.
Here are some pictures of the new Calibre Cuti and we will keep an eye on it to make sure we spot it once it hits retail/e-tail.
