Hi-Fi-esque nettop in Calibre style


Sparkle
has shown its vision of an ION HTPC system at this year's Computex and the new Calibre Cuti n30, as Sparkle decided to brand it, is a modular station that looks like a home stereo system.

The ION core system itself is quite small and slim while the two other components that you can see on the picture are a hot-swap bay for a 2.5-inch hard drive and the third one features VFD screen and probably has something to do with the remote that you can see on the picture. Those two components are connected to the main system via USB cable.

The specifications are basically the same as on any other ION nettop on the market except for the fact that Sparkle notes that you use up to 4GB of DDR2 memory. It uses Atom N330 CPU combined with Nvidia's ION, supports 2.5-inch HDD drive with up to 500GB of capacity, has 802.11bgn WiFi, Gigabit LAN, card reader, internal mini PCI-E x1 slot, 7.1-channel audio, and has HDMI and DVI outputs and a total of four USB 2.0 ports.

We still don't know if these components will be sold separately and if the core system will be available as a standalone product but the overall looks of it is the best one that we have seen.
