Asus Nova P22

 

Asus's advertises its new $900 Nova P22 as a "multimedia computer"--a term I associate with 1992 and CD-ROM drives--and the PC does come with a remote control and Windows Vista with Windows Media Center. But it lacks many features that true Media...

Small and quiet ; Very stylish

No TV tuner, no HDMI port ; Tiny hard drive, no expansion capabilities

This media PC isn't especially media-friendly.

This Mini PC Is No Small Wonder

 

If you like a liquid-cooled, oversized, overclocked, loud-as-a-harrier-jet, game-scorching PC tower, then ASUS' new Nova P22 is not for you. At 9 in x 7.2 in x

Decent price for the form factor. Media savvy as advertised. Analog and digital audio outs. Small and quiet. Sleek black finish is purty. 802.11n and Bluetooth 2.0 hardwired beneath its tiny carapace. Looks a lot like a Wii, if that does anything for you

Accidental shutdowns courtesy of the touchy power button. Strictly DVI video outputs, and this is an HDMI world. Built-in pencil holder (!) is useless if you stand the machine upright. Onboard “hi-fi” speakers could barely fill a small closet with...

Asus Nova P22's is a good-looking machine, and its size suits it for space-constrained settings. But for the same money, you can get a far more capable, true media centre PC, albeit bigger and less stylish.

Asus Nova P22 review

 

Apple's Mac Mini has had a surprisingly easy ride since its launch three years ago. Rather than being assaulted by an army of vicious small-form factor PCs, it's really only had to contend with handful of Shuttles. Until now. The Asus Nova P22 is...

Asus Nova P22

 

Figuring out where to place your PC can be tough, especially if space is an issue. The Nova P22 is Asus's answer to users who want a small PC (this one's a little larger than the latest Harry Potter book) that is easy to hook up and comes with programs...

Small form factor, Easy set-up ; Comes with Recovery DVD ; Remote is a good addition ; Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

Only comes with a gigabyte of RAM ; Tends to slow down when a lot of programs are opened ; Not suitable for gaming

A small box for simple home or office tasks. Page: 1 2 [3]

Product Specifications

The ASUS Nova P22 is diminutive in footprint but powerful in performance. Designed for space-conscious users who demand ultra-quiet operations, the Nova requires only 122 cubic inches of space and incorporates a robust Intel Core 2 Duo processor that is cooled passively and actively by a heat-dissipation module, heatpipes and fans. Supporting the 802.11n wireless standard, the Nova's high 300 Mbps transmission rate allows users to easily download a 30-minute HD video in just 44 seconds! Completing the ensemble, a pair of built-in speakers housed at the front of the Nova offers convenient high-quality audio output. For home theater configurations, the Nova also supports 5.1 speaker configurations with Dolby Digital Live or DTS connect technology. Additionally, the Nova accommodates nearly any environment with ease, thanks to its flexible horizontal/vertical placement, slot-loading drive and its sleek exterior.
