ASRock ION 330HT-BD Blu-ray NetTop

Hardware

Back in July of last year we were one of the first to review the ASRock NetTop ION 330, which was the first Atom-based "nettop" computer from this budget manufacturer that worked in conjunction with Pegatron Corp to assemble this compact computer. The original ASRock NetTop ION 330 worked out quite well and packed reasonable hardware (a dual-core Atom with NVIDIA ION graphics), but the latest computer in this series from ASRock is the ION 330HT-BD. This new nettop computer, which we are reviewing today under Linux, comes complete with a Blu-ray player along with 802.11 g/n WiFi, EuP 2.0 certification, and an MCE remote controller.

ASRock ION 330HT-BD Blu-ray NetTopThe ASRock ION 330HT-BD NetTop continues to use a 1.60GHz Intel Atom 330 dual-core processor, NVIDIA's ION platform with GeForce 9400M graphics, 2GB of DDR2 memory (expandable to 4GB), a 320GB 2.5" hard drive, support for a second 2.5-inch hard drive with RAID0/1 support, a Blu-ray disc drive, and 802.11 b/g/n wireless. While some of the hardware is different, the ION 330HT-BD looks virtually the same as the original NetTop ION 330.

  • I’ve been a long-time GNOME user, but for the past few months, I was in a loving relationship with Elementary OS. I found much to love in the minimalist Linux-based operating system, and I encouraged readers to give it a try. But that has changed. The number of bugs I encountered grew over time, and I’ve recently had enough. As a freelance writer, the only thing I need is a working laptop. If that’s not reliable, then I’m wasting time trying to fix the one tool my job requires.
