Here’s a pointer when you want to name your piece of hardware – it would be best to avoid something called the Jetway Mini Top HBJC600C99-52W-BW, which is a real mouthful even for the seasoned techie. Why not just call it the Jetway Mini for short? This nettop comes with a slim form factor, albeit being rather plain the outside. Within, it is pretty utilitarian, offering a dual core Intel Atom D525 1.8GHz processor, Nvidia ION 2 graphics, Gigabit LAN, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi connectivity, HDMI, DVI, eSATA, RJ45, audio jacks, S/PDIF out (7.1 channel), five USB 2.0 ports and a memory card reader. Apart from that, Jetway will even throw in a karaoke microphone with each purchase, now how about that? The barebones model would lack a single byte of RAM, not to mention storage capability or operating system, so you will have to furnish those yourself. At $270 a pop, throwing in all the other relevant innards won’t see the price zip past $500 for a decent nettop – just don’t expect to play any of the high powered games on this.
