$650.00 Released November, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:HDMI output. Includes a remote control. Powerful components for a small HTPC - full Core 2 Duo processor, 2GB of memory.

The Cons:Very expensive and not worth it for just basic media streaming. Only comes with a DVD drive (VOT550 comes with Blu-ray). Could be smaller, more energy efficient and attractive to consumers with dual core Atom, Nvidia ION graphics.

The ViewSonic VOT530 is built with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor with 2GB of memory to support it. The design of the PC is compact, meaning it takes up less space, uses less cables, and consumes %45 less power than a normal sized PC. A small PC is easy to walk off with, so the ViewSonic VOT530 includes a Kensington lock slot to secure the PC and prevent the investment from disappearing. Windows 7 Home Premium comes pre-installed on the machine. It also includes six USB slots and front and back eSATA connections.
