The hardware specs aren’t that exciting, the CPU is a Core 2 Duo E6320 clocked at 1.86GHz on a 1,066MHz FSB. The chipset is from Intel, although we’re not quite sure which version it is, but the P22 relies on Intel GMA 3000 graphics which leads us to believe it’s either a version of the 946 chipset or the Q965/Q963, especially as the system only ships with 1GB of DDR2 667MHz memory. Storage is provided by a 160GB SATA hard drive and there’s also a slot-loaded Super Multi DVD writer.Cheaper versions are also planned.
Other features of the P22 include Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11 Draft-n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.0, DVI, 7.1-channel HD audio, four USB 2.0 ports and as oddly as it might seem, a pair of integrated stereo speakers in the front. The system measures 231x184x54mm (WxDxH), has a volume of 2 litres and weighs in at 1.78kg’s, that less than many notebooks. For now the Nova P22 is only available in Taiwan and if you want one it’ll set you back AU$1,154 or US$1,019.
