A great PC that offers a lot for its price tag. Simple, Sleek and stylish, a big A+ from me.

Excerpt: The Acer Aspire Revo R3600. Those who have read my previous reviews know I like to stream media to my television. I used to do this via a WD HDTV steamer (non live version) I had the idea though that it would be pretty cool to be able to have the whole internet on the television.
Summary: Bought this two weeks ago after much deliberation on whether it would be up to the job of a day to day PC. Well, what can I say; this really is an impressive piece of kit, so much so, I'm probably going to get another one!
Summary: as a rule i do not write any reviews,but i wanted to tell everyone what a terrific item this is. like most people i thought the atom processor would not be up to much,but i was surprised. first of all i agree with an earlier review to get the best from this you must remove mcafee protection.
Summary: This is a great machine that works well within its remit ie HD and movie playback and Vista capable at an affordable price. As a second computer setup +/- media center to go with my LCD tv, it does very well.
Summary: Great value product. With Vista loaded it is very slow, but now I have loaded Windows 7 it is a very different machine, very useable. Playback of HD video is fine apart from BBC iplayer, but that is an issue with Adobe Flash drivers and the new driver should fix that.
Summary: I didn't believe that this tiny box could do everything a desktop could until I tried it! It is so easy to set up, much less hassle than a desktop tower, and you just plug in and go! It runs very efficiently, and is so much easier to find space for.
Summary: I am really pleased with this computer. It's a doddle to set up, sits out of sight behind by TV and is so quiet. To get the best out of it, remove all the unnecessary software which comes with it (especially McAfee).
Summary: Un-install McAfee as it kills the box and remove some of the stuff you'll never use like MS works and with a few tweaks to Vista (or as much as you can tweak Vista) and it runs really well. The HDMI output is excellent it it can handle full HD decoding with no issues.
Summary: It works with Windows 7 like a charm! Very responsive and snap. Plays all the HD media content without any problems. In my opinion it is as efficient as it can be providing it uses only 25W of power (dvd players use more than that!).
Summary: A great computer when you get rid of Macefee security (replaced by AVG) and add Windows 7 that gives you the speed of a standard desk top. It is very quiet and power-consumption friendly, it looks good too.
