Perfect Ubuntu TV box

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: Looks good, generates a little heat, but not too bad. Onboard GPU is actually not bad.
  • Pros: Easy to build, just add memory, HD, Mini-PCI wireless, and OS. Good speed with Celeron M. Celeron M's are good overall ships for day to day tasks.
  • Cons: Pricey. Over 700 bucks with a Windows OS and 2 GB of ram, large HD. I use linux to cut costs and all works well. HD bay is tight.

Portable, looks nice

  • Summary: this shuttle x200 barebone uses 200 pin so-dimm laptop memory. comes with a cdrw/dvd slot load reader. has a mini pci slot that i'm using a intel wireless card on. all this is not mentioned or incorrect in the specifications of newegg's.
  • Pros: 3.5" Sata hd. extremely portable. decent speed even with the celeron chip. future upgradable to a core 2 duo. perfect for a HTPC.
  • Cons: i didn't buy from newegg cause the price is $40 cheaper elsewhere. however the celeron chip had 3 bent pins on the edges. bent it back with my fingernails and it works. HD a little hard to fit in and get the plugs in.

Super compact, Decent Performance

Jeffrey S., Newegg

  • Summary: The other reviewer is correct. Uses DDR2 200-pin (notebook) memory. I ordered mine without the memory since I was in no hurry just to be safe. Running SOLARIS 10 on it with the included Celeron and 2GB memory. Speed is supreme.
  • Pros: Excellent footprint! Many people think this is an external HDD or something. Extremely portable. Future upgrade to a Core 2 Duo! Very quiet, much like a laptop would be. Minimal exterior cabling, tends to look great on a glass desk.
  • Cons: Somewhat limited, gotta be careful how you position it due to the heatpipe design inside. Could run hot positioned incorrectly. Must use an external HDD. Would have been nice if they could have added support for an internal laptop HDD (1" minimal addition to size).
