Here’s a new one. We know nettops are great as low-budget, HD-capable HTPCs running Windows XP/7 or Linux-based OSes. Now the HABEY USA guys are showing off that its MITX-6564 mini-ITX based nettop can also run Windows Embedded Standard 7 as the main OS for an even snappier, less resource intensive experience. A quick check on Microsoft’s website shows that WS7P includes support for all the Digital Home essentials: Home Group, Windows Media Center, PlayTo, Windows Media Player, Internet Explorer, etc. As for the ENT-6564 itself, the nettop is fully HD capable (resolution up to 2040×1152 via HDMI), thanks to its NVIDIA ION 2 graphics, and boasts a dual-core 1.66GHz D510 Intel Atom processor, 2GB DDR2 memory, and a 250GB hard drive. Price? It’s unclear being that it’s going to be “available for sale to resellers, system integrators and major online retailers.” What do you think? Would you consider running Windows Embedded Standard 7 over Windows 7 on your next HTPC system? [via]
