That does not look like the same hardware and it looks larger.

If you are asking about a very specific platform made by Nvidia then not to my knowledge. The image you linked is from the CES show and is a prototype. Just doing a little bit of research (like clicking the handy link they put right in that article for you...), will get you to this article that clearly says it is a Pico ITX box prototype. While Nvidia never sold its own Ion Platform system, to my knowledge, there are a number of SFF systems came out using the Ion platform.

How does the GIGABYTE GB-XM14-1037 compare? I know for sure the CPU runs circles around the Atom 330. The Intel IGP has 6EUs similar to HD 2000, which I think compares favorably to the paltry 16 core GeForce 9400 hampered by shared DDR2 system RAM, not that either is suitable for real gaming. 17W TDP for both Intel CPU+GPU, versus 8W for the Atom 330 plus whatever for the Nvidia GPU.

I snagged one of these http://us.aopen.com/products_detail.aspx?auno=3014 a couple years ago and built a HTPC using my spare laptop parts from when I upgraded my gateway fx laptop a couple years prior. All-in-all its a nice capable htpc or an office pc. I just need to buy a small ssd and maybe invest in a blu-ray drive, Ive been using Openelec from a usb for a couple weeks and love it. Though I had to repurpose the machine for my office computer till I build my new gaming rig.

yes the nvidia ion chipset did come out, iirc there are nettops and netbooks alike armed with it.

IIRC ion2 even came out...

Looks like there is some info on tomshardware on some ion 2 nettops
