An Atom N270-powered rig that can handle 1080p content? Say it ain't so! The relatively unknown HABEY has stepped forward with a minuscule media PC that includes a fairly weak CPU and a potent hardware decoder that can supposedly handle 1080p content and even Blu-ray flicks. The BIS-6550HD is meant to be one of the most energy efficient machines on the planet to adequately play back 1080p material, with the entire system sucking down under 13 watts. Complementing the 1.6GHz processor is a single SODIMM slot for carrying up to 2GB of RAM, wireless / HDTV tuner options, a slew of video outputs, multicard reader, gigabit Ethernet and four USB 2.0 sockets. Unfortunately, pricing and availability both remain undisclosed, but we get the feeling you'll be paying dearly for the chance to see 1080p sans stutter on a machine this tiny.

I wonder what they are using, cause I think it would have been said if this was the Ion platform, or like those N10 netbooks with 9300's in them.


13 watts with Ion , doubt it.


Impressive though, but I thought Intel's NB used more than that.

It does, the chipset currently used on Atoms are pretty power hungry comparatively.

And Ion is supposed to be low power. I don't remember how much, but total system was supposed to be 18watts I think.
