Default NVIDIA's ION Platform: Hands-On Impressions

There's been a fair amount of attention hovering around NVIDIA's ION this month, and for good reason. It's small, offers decent performance, and can deliver huge peripheral connectivity. We were able to spend some time with the ION earlier this month, putting it through various tests, such as gaming, HD playback and even Photoshop. Read on for all of our experiences.

You can read Greg's full-look at NVIDIA's cool ION platform here and discuss it here!

This is NVIDIA's goal. Their are already netbooks out there with a similar setup but lacking the dual core Atom.
