There has been a bunch of buzz about NVIDIA’s line of “Nettop”s as they have been trickling out into the market.  The Acer AspireRevo was designed to be affordable and a space-saver as they promote its use as a HTPC or small form-factor desktop.  For around $350, you get a low-power Intel Atom 230 processor – enough to stream your movies, music and other multimedia to your home theater via the HDMI connector. Of of these was powering a 50-inch plasma in 1080P with no effort whatsoever.
