What exactly are net tops

actually i am looking for a low cost / low power regular computing
solution. The problems with netbooks are that they over time will get
tiring , if some one wants to use it for a few hours a day.

My understanding it that these desktop pc's are both low cost and low
power but still retain the capability of pretty impressive computing -
office apps, multimedia etc, apart from net connectivity.

But the specs don't mention what is missing - say does it have an
optical drive or not etc. Nor the power configuration - it would be
ideal and amzing if it could run of 12 volt DC
