Running Windows 7 Professional, both of these ultra-compact computers not only save space but also materials thanks to that "screw-less chassis" design. Owners can either mount their nettop of choice onto a stand or on the back of a display.
Most of the similar specs found among these two Veriton nettop boxes is connectivity-related. That would consist of 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, Gigabit Ethernet, six USB 2.0 ports, HDMI, VGA, serial ports, a mini PCI Express 1.1 x1 slot, and HD headphone/microphone jacks. They also both host 320GB hard drives and 2GB of DDR3 SDRAM.
But each of these Acer computers have a different focus. The Atom D425-powered N281G concentrates on office productivity tasks, and it comes with a Intel 3150 Graphics Media Accelerator. The N282G (pictured above) is intended for viewing HD content with Nvidia Ion 2 graphics.
Rolling out across North America this month, the Veriton N281G and N282G nettops will be retail for just $399 and $449 respectively.
