Maybe it's supposed to fill in the role of HTPCs? The now-extinct netbooks?

netbook isnt dead though, just evolved.

now celeron/pentium in <11" are being pushed into netbook category rather then ultraportable and the good ol atom has now found a home in tablets. give those tablets a keyboard dock and it is essentially a glorified netbook with a removable touch screen

it doesnt negate the size advantage though, it still has less footprint then your average tower, no ugly box next to your TV, vesa mountable , potential thin client

it certainly has better connectivity options and more customizable then a tablet and lower costs.

For the record, the top two models are good enough to play a good selection of FPS's on low.

Things like COD4, BF2 / P4F, and TF2 will run very nicely.
There are tons of games out there at that performance level requirement.

War Thunder would run beautifully.


Honestly, it's absolutely ridiculous how much power we can cram into the palm of your hand now.

Add wireless keyboard+mouse.
VESA mount this behind your monitor.

...where's the computer? You basically just made a All-In-One.
Once again...

A modular all-in-one, where the display or the computer can be serviced or upgraded independently.

I want one of these for my mother's HTPC, but I'll probably wait for the Haswell Iris version.

dont even need to look at the top 2 model, i7 to i5 is essentially the same with slight cache difference. i5 to i3 is the difference in turbo. all 3 are based off the same hyper threaded dual core. ivy i3 and above with a HD4000 graphics is capable of playing anything at 720p with moderate textures

COD titles are based off the same old engine so the req are pretty mild

So I mount this to the back of my spare monitor and plug a spare external DVD drive and some Audiengine A2's and all of a sudden the GF has a nice little HTPC for the bedroom?... interesting.

How much are these? I searched and ended up at the Canada Computers sight which is running crazy slow (because of Haswell's launch maybe?)

edit: NM, found prices, $320, $410, and $560 at Canada Computers.
