Dreamplug Nettop

The  DreamPlug is a nettop so small that it doesn’t even need a power adapter – the entire nettop is an oversized plug that goes straight into your wall jack.  The Dreamplug is powered by a 1.2 GHz Marvell Sheeva ARM-based processor, 512MB of DDR2 memory, 1GB of storage, and Ethernet, USB, and eSATA connectors, 802.11b/g/ WiFi, Bluetooth, a headphone jack and an SD card slot.

There’s one major thing lacking on the Dreamplug howerver.   There’s no VGA, DVI, or HDMI output — and that’s because there’s no graphics processor on board. While it’d be kind of neat to plug a keyboard, monitor, and mouse into the DreamPlug and run a light-weight desktop Linux distribution, the little guy is really designed for simpler tasks such as network storage, managing a security system, or home automation.

The DreamPlug measures just 4.3″ x 2.7″ x 1.9″ and uses just 5W of power. It’s based on the Plug Computer platform.
