Specifications, Availability and Pricing
Above we get our first look at the specifications of the Slim-N10 nettop computer. Starting from the top, you can see that it uses the Intel Atom N330 dual-core processor running at 1.6GHz. It also comes with the NVIDIA Ion chipset, which is the GeForce 9400M GPU. You get 2GB of DDR2 memory, SO-DIMM style which is laptop sized memory, but sadly it is only single-channel and not dual-channel. There is a Samsung 250GB 2.5-inch hard drive inside and it only spins at 5,400 RPM. Rounding out the specs, you have a HDMI, VGA, analog audio out as well as a card reader, five USB 2.0 ports, 10/100 wired LAN and 802.11g wireless.
We got the system in for review from BroNet in Australia (the distributor) and they will be selling the system on their Giada website by the time we publish this review or shortly after. The price of the system is listed at $599 AUD (around $550 USD at the time of writing), but that also includes $279 AUD worth of free bonus goodies - some software, a graphic tablet and a USB HDTV tuner from Kworld. If you're not in Australia, I guess you could contact BroNet (details above in the image) and ask what can be done, if you are interested.
So as for the price, it's not cheap. I actually expected it to be quite a bit cheaper than this, but you do get some extras thrown in, but the particular Slim-N10 that we are looking at today is not optioned out. Meaning it only has a 250GB HDD when the best option is a 500GB HDD, it only has 2GB of RAM where the best option is 4GB and it only has 802.11g wireless when the best option is the faster 802.11n. The hard drive only spins at 5,400 RPM and is rather slow - we'd much rather see a 7,200 RPM HDD installed or better yet, an SSD, which would really bring the system to life.
Nevertheless, let's power onto the next page where we have a great video for you to check out the package as well as outside and inside of the Slim-N10 nettop system.
