Excerpt: I am a gadget geek but recently, the main factor when buying a new gadget is power consumption. I have had the Acer Revo for around 2 months and it cost just £200 new. Firstly, this PC does not make any noise like my old PC which sounds like a jet engine.
Summary: Bought a similar model, the Packard Bell imax mini N3600, same specs, same machine,just rebranded as packard bell.. quick thing.. its underpowered.. so i did the following to optimize the performance: - Uninstall all unwanted programs and games - Install TuneUp Utilities 2011 - Install CCleaner -...
...... no longer works with BBC iPlayer HD! YES IT DOES!!

Summary: ...maybe 'not out the box'.... BUT install XBMC for Windows and install the BBC iplayer plugin....working fine here :) we have 3 around the house used JUST for media playback...even 1080p @ 24 Frames Per Second. great machines....
Summary: I realy like this product. It looks fab and for the job i needed it for, powerfull enough to. Easy to set up. Great for a start up pc. the wireless keybord and mouse is also also quite stylish. keybord is quite small if your used to a full size one.
Summary: Great product silent pretty fast, comes with win 7 64 bit and a lot of extra software you don't need. Uninstalled almost all that and put Microsoft Security Essentials for anti virus protection(light weight).
Summary: When I recieved this 'nettop' pc the first thing I did was insert a 500GB hard drive that I bought from Amazon, and installed Windows 7 on it. It is connected to my TV displaying in full 1080p and playing Blu-Rays and DVDs through an external drive.
Without reservation - this is your amazing cut price HTPC

Summary: I love this machine. I hook it up to a 40inch sony bravia lcd and it's almost too high resolution. I put boxee on it and it runs like a dream. I was worried about intel atom but the nvidia ION does what it says - it does hi-end graphics without taxing the intel atom.
Summary: Tremendous little machine, does exactly what it says on the tin. A little slow at times but for the price what do you want? One of the main things that i bought this for is to watch iplayer etc on my widescreen at home. It fits in great behind my telly and obviously connects via an hdmi cable.
Summary: Absolutely astonishing piece of kit. Almost silent, came with 64bit Windows 7, fits on the back of a monitor with VESA mount, uses HDMI so you don't even need speakers if your monitor has them. And the price is ridiculous. All in, with a 24" Acer monitor £450 - not at all bad.
