The guts of the IQ770 are laptop components that have been shoehorned into a compact desktop unit that doesn't look much like a desktop PC. The base unit houses an Asus motherboard built around and Nvidia GeForce Go 6100 chipset, a dual-core AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-52 processor running at 1.6GHz, 2GB of dual-channel DDR 2 memory (PC2-4300) and GeForce Go 7600 graphics with 256MB of dedicated Ram.

On the front, there's a slot-loading DVD writer, playback control buttons and two card-reader slots. Behind a flap that's rather grandly labelled as a "Connectivity Center", there are stereo RCA, s-video, four-pin mini Firewire and a pair of USB 2.0 ports. Moving to the rear, we have the mains power plug, vents for the cooling fan, Gigabit Ethernet, three more USB ports, a six-pin Firewire connector, co-axial digital audio and three 3.5mm audio jacks.
