Slashgear has discovered the first all-in-one nettop running off Intel's next-gen Pine Trail Atom refresh. The unit is from KND, a chinese maker with the model being K1850.

Specis include a dual-core 1.66GHz D510 (Pineview) chip, 18.6-inch display, 250GB HDD, 2GB RAM, WiFi, 3-in-1 card reader, three USB ports and a DVD drive.

Pine Trail moves the Pineview CPU and both the memory and graphics controllers onto a single chipset, to be accompanied by a separate I/O controller called Tiger Point. That, Intel claim, means power requirements are reduced, speed is increased and heat output drops; admittedly, those factors might be more useful in a netbook, where you could squeeze out more runtime from a battery or even go fanless.
