In addition to Asustek Computer's Eee Box and Micro-Star International's (MSI's) Wind PC, Synnex is also ready to ship its Lemel Q to heat up the nettop market in August, according to channel sources.

Asustek's Eee Box will launch on July 30 in Taiwan.

Synnex's upcoming 3-liter Lemel Q PC Smart deluxe nettop is based on the Intel Atom 230 processor and priced around NT$13,900 (US$455.7). The nettop will also be offered bundled with a 19-inch LCD monitor for NT$18,888.

Although larger than the Eee Box, the Q PC Smart includes a built-in DVD burner enabling a more flexible multimedia experience. MSI's Wind PC also includes support for an optical drive but is a much larger 5-liter design.
