Despite the lack of either a HD DVD or a Blu-ray drive, Evesham is selling the new Zieo NX600-HD on its "unrivalled HD qualities".

A 17-inch WUXGA HD screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 are certainly impressive screen specs.

The display features X-Bright technology for both HD game play and for high definition movie viewing.

The new Zieo features NVIDIA’s GeForce 8700M GT graphics.

Movie lovers can experience NVIDIA’s PureVideo HD Technology which claims to deliver great picture clarity, smooth video, accurate colour and precise image scaling.

Gaming fanatics can enjoy the graphic realism and film-quality effects with full Microsoft DirectX10 support.

The new Zieo NX600-HD also features Intel High Definition Audio support as well as 2.1 Speakers for crystal clear sound to complement stratospheric visuals.
