Laptop magazine got their hands on a NVIDIA Ion Reference PC to do some testing. I am not sure what NVIDIA is trying to do here with distributing these test units to tech sites. Are netbook vendors not buying into their Ion platform yet? Where are the actual Ion based end consumer products?
Anyway here is a quote from the Ion Review: "Our 1.4-pound test unit was Nvidia’s Ion Reference PC, a small 5.6 x 4.3 x 1.5-inch box that looked very much like an early build of a nettop. There’s a thermal vent carved into the top of the box in the shape of Nvidia’s “eye” logo, plus extra vents on the side of the unit to help keep it cool. Scattered about the front and back of the Ion box are seven USB 2.0 ports, HDMI, VGA, DisplayPort, and dual-link DVI (which was disabled in this build, but will be fully functional when Nvidia updates Ion’s BIOS)."
