ALUSA Atom Desktop


ALUSA is a new company out of Portugal and they describe this Atom-powered desktop as "a small computer, lightweight, with low power consumption it is ideal for web browsing, listening to music, watching movies, working on documents and playing some casual games." This desktop packs an Intel Atom D525 1.8GHz CPU, a motherboard with an Intel NM10 chipset and GMA3150 graphics, 2GB of DDR3 system memory, a 500GB SATA 2.0 HDD, an SD/SDHC/MS/MMC card reader, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Gigabit Ethernet, six USB 2.0 ports, and 7.1-channel audio.

The ALUSA Atom Desktop is housed within a small 190 x 135 x 25 mm chassis and the weight of the assembled PC is just about 450 grams. This PC relies upon an external 65-Watt, 19V power supply. ALUSA isn't actually manufacturing the system but it's a Foxconn unit. The exposed DMI information indicates the OEM as being a Foxconn NETBOX nT-435/nT-535 unit.
