Cool, does this mean it comes with an integrated IR receiver for the MCE remote ?

Quote:- Support Wifi (not the Pro model)
- DTS support (SPDIF and HDMI)
- RAID support
- ESata output
- MCE remote controller
- 500GB drive

Thanks! Any word on pricing? These $199 Acers are still pretty compelling, especially once flash 10.1 comes out.

Any word on release dates?

This is really nice.
Shame they didn't add Bluetooth and Wi-Fi while they were at it.

However, it all comes down to brasstags - because the ION330 selling point, for me at least, is definetly it's cost.

I wish it would be a case prepared for passive cooling...or the attention to focus more on noise-reduction. So far no word on that.
Still I would not give money for built-in IR and bigger HD. Show me more....Oo

Looks like they're already losing sight of the htpc market. Hope Asrock doesn't take their htpc models down the same path the netbook went down...

Will be interesting to see how close the pricing is to the Mac Mini since the mini has some additional benefits (Core2, bluetooth)...

Since the CPU is the same I think we can assume that at least it's not noiser than the previous 330.
