ViewSonic starts shipping CULV nettops

Atoms are for the meek

 

ViewSonic has started shipping a new mini PC, but the company insists it's not a nettop and there is a very good reason for this.

The VOT125 is not powered by Intel's cheap and underpowered Atom processors. It is based on CULV chips, which are usually reserved for thin and light notebooks. Basically it's a nettop on steroids, as it can be equipped with SU743, SU2300, SU4100 or SU7300 processors.

Clearly, it has a lot more to offer than run of the mill Atom nettops, but it still comes in a rather compact package. It measures just 38x129x137mm, so it's even smaller than most Atom based nettops. In addition, the VOT125 packs 2GB of memory, 250GB of storage, WiFi, Ethernet, a 3-in-1 card reader as well as VGA and HDMI outputs.

As always, there is a downside, a rather big one. The cheapest versions, based on the single-core SU743 and dual-core SU2300 are priced at $499 and $529 respectively. However, SU4100 and SU7300 versions cost $629 and $679 respectively and frankly this is just a bit too much. In fact, you can get a CULV notebook with roughly the same spec at a similar price point.
