Moneual MiNEW A10: HTPC or nettop?

Do you spend more time watching videos on your computer? Koren HTPC producer Moneual introduced a new mini PC under the name of MiNEW A10, based on the Intel Atom 230 1.6GHz and running the operating system Windows XP Home Edition. The company is billing the MiNEW A10 as a basic HTPC (Home Theater PC). Though looking at the specs, it’s hard to see how – connectivity lacks even an S-Video port to hook up your TV. Even if you could, it is arguable how much value the single-core processor, 1GB of DDR2 memory, GMA 960 graphics, and 2.5-inch 160 GB 5,400rpm hard-drive could bring.

When it comes to connectivity, the MiNEW A10 does have four USB 2.0 ports, a VGA output, Ethernet and audio in/out, PS/2 and a serial port – these are all pretty standard for nettops. It also comes with a touch power button on the front panel. Of course you want to know the size. Well, it just measures 7.95 x 8.66 x 2.75 inches or 220 x 67 x 220mm and, uses 70-percent less power than a traditional desktop PC, according to Moneual.

It will cost around 400,000 KRW ($314) when it lands in Korea and it seems to come in at least four attractive colors – red, blue, black, and silver. This simply means that you get to choose the color that will blend in your living room or anywhere you want to place it.

While we’re waiting to see if this will reach Western shores, you can browse around for some nifty nettops here.
