Habey EPC 6563 Nettop

Habey has a new barebones (no RAM or HDD) called the  EPC-6563.  It uses the 1.83 GHz Intel Atom D525 dual core processor and has 2 memory slots and 2 mini-PCI Express slots for expansion inside a nice steel and aluminum case.  There are also 2 USB ports, an Ethernet jack, VGA and HDMI ports, and S/PDIF audio.  Those two  PCIe slots should come in handy, as you can throw in a TV tuner, HD decoder, wireless card, or other expansion device, which could make this a great platform for your HTPC.

The Habey EPC-6563 is available from Amazon for $199.99.

Habey WIT 1800 nettop

Habey is distinctively making a push into the nettop scene.  We hadn’t heard much from them before 2010, but in the last few months we’ve seen a Habey HTPC nettop, as well as the tiny Habey BIS-6622 and BIS-6620 nettops. Today, there’s another new model, the Habey WIT-1800.  It’s a power efficient fan-less design based on Intel’s ATOM N450 and D410 processors plus a ICH8M South Bridge instead of the standard NM10 Express chipset.

One of the most interesting features are the  four built-in mini-PCIe slots and two on board rear accessible SIM sockets that enables the system to support up to two 3G mini-PCIe modules for dual 3G wireless communication as well as WiFi, SSD  (in addition to the normal HDD/SSD 2.5″ SATA interface option) and other mini-PCIe devices.

There are many other connections as well as 3g,  including one serial port, two USB 2.0 ports, one Intel 82574 Gigabit Ethernet port, one SATA port, one CF socket and two SMA sockets for 3G antennas. The compact fanless enclosure is based on HABEY’s highly efficient ICEFIN™ proprietary thermal design.  While the single VGA port will support either up to 2048×1536 (with the Atom D410 CPU) or up to 1400×1050 (N450) resolutions.

Pricing and availability have yet to be announced.

Habey has a follow-up to their tiny Habey BIS-6620 low power desktop with a new model called the BIS-6622. The old 6620 featured an Intel Atom Z510 CPU and GMA 500, but the Habey BIS-6622 uses a brand new Intel Atom E6xx Tunnel Creek chip.

The computer measures 5″ x 5″ x 1.75″ and has room for a 1.8″ hard drive and up to 2GB of memory. There’s also a mini PCI Express slot.

The Habey BIS-6622 has Intel GMA 600 graphics, which I’m hearing should be noticeably faster than the GMA 500 graphics that came with earlier Atom Z5xx series chips. The computer also has HDMI and VGA outputs and is capable of pumping out video with resolutions up to 1920 x 1080 at 50Hz or 1280 x 768 at 60Hz. There’s support for hardware acceleration for H.264, MPEG2, MPEG4, WMV9, and VC1 video up to 1080i resolutions.

There are also 4 USB ports plus an internal USB port, Ethernet, and audio ports.  The computer can run Windows, Windows Embedded, and Linux.
