Summary: The Acer AspireRevo R3600 is the most versatile nettop we've tested to date. Aided by its Nvidia ION chipset, it's capable of playing games and running 1080p movies. Ultimately, it's very good value for anyone that requires a cheap second PC
Summary: A rather different PC in that all you get is a small box not a lot bigger than a video cassette and a wireless keyboard and mouse. This can even be mounted on the back of a panel or a TV so maybe ideal for the occasional user.
Excerpt: Nettops are relatively the new type of products that fill a niche up to now remaining, rather left unoccupied. They are something like barebone systems that are small and are mostly based on the intel Atom processors.
Excerpt: The Revo is a diamond-shaped box about the size of a hardback book, and is designed to sit upright on a clear plastic stand that you clip to its base. It could equally lie on its side on a shelf or even attach to the back of your monitor using a VESA mount.
Summary: From the Asus Eee 701 to the Samsung NC10, via the Eee Box and the MSI Wind Top, we've seen enough netbooks, nettops and touch screen all-in-ones powered by the tiny Intel Atom processor over the last 18 months to know its capabilities inside out.
Summary: If you want a low cost desktop, then the ‘nettop’ makes a lot of sense. By using Nvidia’s Ion technology, this Acer represents the first genuinely desirable nettop, thanks to an HD-capable graphics chip.
