While there are different ports on the Core 100HT, this ASRock computer has the same basic form factor as their earlier nettop computers and measures in at 195 x 70 x 186 mm. The DVD Super-Multi drive is exposed on the front while below that and next to ASRock's logo and power button are two USB 3.0 ports and the standard audio headphone/microphone jacks. This is ASRock's first nettop to incorporate USB 3.0 support. Advertised on the front of the Core 100HT is also the THX TruStudio PRO audio capabilities while on the left-hand side are some vents for ensuring adequate airflow.

On the rear of the ASRock Core 100HT is a Gigabit Ethernet port, six USB 2.0 ports, one eSATA 2.0 port, one VGA output, one HDMI output (that can be used in conjunction with the included HDMI to DVI adapter), a +19V DC input, S/PDIF, and five analog audio jacks. There is also a small system fan that -- like the ION 330 series -- operates quietly and provides sufficient airflow for the system.

Other features of the ASRock Core 100HT include 802.11g/n wireless networking, EuP compliance, HDMI audio pass-through, ASRock AIWI, ASRock App Charger for still providing USB power when the system is powered off or in S1/S3/S4 power modes so that peripherals can continue to charge, and the motherboard uses ASRock's ultra-durable Japanese capacitors. The Core 100HT is available in white and black enclosures with our review sample from ASRock being the black model.
