Thank you for your post :)

Was gonna post this just after 8am, but ebuyer had a DO NOT POST tag on it, so didn't bother...

Cracking deal for the little Acer box. You can install XBMC Live on it and have the best 1080P capable network media player for under £150.

You can buy the dual core Atom 330 version for almost the same price:

36 Expected on 27/10/09, but I am CERTAIN that they will already have far more orders (hundreds I should think!!!) than this future stock due to there being another thread running about that one here:

For a start, I've got an order waiting since Wednesday morning.

Only if you're prepared to fax them 2 forms of identity if you're a new customer. I'd rather pay this for a lower spec than fax personal details to a web stei.
#8
Certainly a good price , but £210 is misleading. It's been at £170 all week for definite (I've been monitoring it), and maybe for the last month, so really only a £20 drop. Not sure how they can get away with that legally, when they only have the one online site. Retailers did it by offering the highter price in selected stores for 28 days.

Fair enough, but you won't find it at this price with Windows, and some people are happy to pay less and install whatever they want on it. Including pirate versions of Windows......................:whistling:

Insight are a big company, esp in the USA. They have proper premises where you used to be able to pickup from (and setup an account if you wished). They used to be located somewhere slightly South of Sheffield. This isn't a bob the builder company - they used to sell only to trade.

And so am I. I do everything I could want to do with WIndows under Linux, for free, with no forced upgrade path and no worries about viruses etc.

This bit puzzles me:

It just wouldn't happen!

I wish it was.

I would definitely buy one of these if a talking cement mixer delivered it to my house.

To be honest, that was a joke, I would probably prefer to buy a linux-based machine these days and then I could just wipe it and install the version of Windows on there of my choice, instead of having to pay a premium for an xp license or being forced to buy a vista license which I don't actually want and couldn't possibly use.

Hi guys, i bought the acer one netbook, came with linux on it which was good for surfing etc but little else, so i installed mac os and win7 on it on a dual boot, loads of guides on this. All u need is a usb dvdrom. i already had a spare dvdwriter and bought a usb caddy for under a tenner and slotted it in.
Im thinking now if i should get rid of my noisey 3.4 p4 and just bolt it to the back of my monitor and use the portable laptop dvd drive i used before, or maybe get rid of my mac mini thats my media pc in front room.....hmmmm

Im also loving the low wattage, 65w compaired to 450watts...sooo tempting to buy 2,lol

Normally I would be the first to jump on you with your unexplained anti-linux comment but my main reason for buying this would be the media acceleration abilities of the ION. However I have yet to see any confirmation from anywhere on how well this works under linux vs windows.

If I was to buy this it would be as a small media centre, anyone tried the ION on linux?

I very much doubt Mcaffee works, besides why would you even want to run it.

Thanks both, have some rep. I believe I will still be put off by linux and its eternal failure to do full screen flash well. Still at £150 maybe its worth a shot.

Agreed. Don't get me wrong. I'm merely saying that a lot of Windows stuff (a lot of which is free and is also not Microsoft) will run on Linux, which is another good reason for using Linux. I'm on your side!!

It's not linux that is the problem with flash, its adobe's flash player. But don't worry adobe have got there finger out their ass and got GPU off loading sorted for 10.1 which is due out in Q3/2009 which is now, but most likely early 2010.:thumbsup:

Just because it's not Linux's fault doesn't mean it's Linux's problem. The fact remains that I want a media centre machine that can play everything.

Also to be honest I kinda prefer windows media centre to XMBC, it just looks nicer. Usually thats not such an issue for me. I use red hat all day in work and switch between ubuntu on my laptop and windows on my PC for gaming.

However in my living room I want something that looks a bit swish, XMBC to me just doesn't it looks cheap.

Hi guys, i bought the acer one netbook, came with linux on it which was good for surfing etc but little else,
I'm interested to know what it wasn't good for - although I agree that Linpus isn't the best Linux distribution; Ubuntu Netbook Remix*, for one, is a lot better.

I suppose saying what you did rather than the usual comment about having to resort to a command line every two minutes is progress! :)

*(new version out next week, or download now if you can't wait and it'll upgrade automatically)
#30
i would buy one but i'm too nervous relying on video acceleration.. such a weak cpu for an htpc. my experience is generally that the one video file you want to watch is outside the specs supported. i'd rather throw brute cpu force at it.
#31
Not sure why this is a deal? The Linux one has always been £150?

But does make a lovely quiet web/fileserver :)

That is the problem with this site - is it just about great reductions/special offers on products or should it include products which are just good value (compared with similar products) but not particularly reduced in any way?

It's about products that more people perceive to be a notable deal than people perceive it to be not notable. It's about the average opinion of the users of the site.

Yeah that's what's kinda put me off these mini-Itx pcs for a while but I think I'll throw together one based on a core2duo and Zotac mobo just for piece of mind.
#37
How quiet is this? Does it have a fan(s) at all?
2 Likes #38
Hi,

I bought one of these in the spring when they came out (same price as this deal). Excellent little PC.

Noise: It does have fans, but they rarely kick in. I have it under a desk and I cannot hear it when sat at the desk.

It is great as a HTPC. I installed Ubuntu 9.04 and XBMC. It plays HD (1080p) video flawlessly with less than 10% CPU load (thanks to the VDPAU graphics acceleration - make sure you install the special NVIDIA driver for it) and BBC iPlayer at HD resolution looks great.

Hope that helps anyone undecided
