    Which HTPC solution would people recommend for this PC?

    Load XBMC on at and you are away

    Some frustration may apply

    I bought this with a smaller 500gb drive for £150 a couple of weeks ago. Its a cracking little machine. I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate with XBMC.

    Its worth noting that this comes with FreeDos. If you want to install XBMC then (the last time i checked) this machine doesn't run openelec or XBMC under Linux. This may have changed though.

    Anyone know how these things handle web based games (flash etc). Thinking of one for the kids. Doesn't need to do "proper" PC gaming.

    I run Xbmcbutu on mine or you could go with Openelec choice is yours

    Might be worth swapping out the HDD & sticking a SSD in,keep the 750gb & stick it in an enclosure

    Use Openelec instead. Installs what is essentially xbmc with a minimum of frustration.

    Edit: ignore that - unless things have changed this is the HTPC that you can't install xbmc/opnelec on. Baffling decision.

    I believe its an issue with the Intel HD graphics card.

    Openelec (XBMC that runs standalone)

    I bought one of these and I'm running w8 with xbmc and found no issues with this combo. Tried a couple of 5gb 1080p mkvs and moved them nicely.

    I was looking at getting one of these Nettops as a dedicated HTPC solution with XBMC but I decided to give the Raspberry Pi a go. I installed Raspbmc on it last night and it's really surprised me how good it is. I think if you're looking for a dedicated XBMC player (and if you've got a spare portable HD or a NAS) then I'd definitely consider the Raspberry Pi. It handles streaming 1080p films without any issues.

    It's certainly not as good as this Nettop though as Raspberry Pi's do have their limitations. You really need to hook it up to an AV Receiver that is capable of converting audio streams as it's quite limited in the audio support department. For me though it's a great solution and if you can't afford one of these bad boys then it's worth giving the RPi a go.

    I got the 500gb version a few weeks ago, put windows 7 on, and xbmc. Plays 1080 mkv's perfectly. OK, don't buy it if you want to play the latest games, but as an extra PC hooked up to TV and home network it's great. Would highly recommend. Also, it's kind of designed for win8, but 7 goes on fine, using (mostly) the win8 drivers from Acer website.

    For openelec i'd recommend getting the Intel Celeron NUC. http://www.dabs.com/products/intel-nuc-celeron-847-qs77-ddr3-usb-2-0-2-x-hdmi--next-unit-of-computing--8K0N.html?src=15

    Works out a bit more expensive but it's tiny and silent.

    I've had a similar machine, presumably older, with the Atom processor and 500gig HDD. Installed Win 7 with XBMC and its been fantastic for the 12 months or so I've used it, able to play 720 HD films fine, also works with Youtube in 720 fine as well.

    Are the drives in these 2.5" or 3.5"?

    Anyone know if I'd have any luck connecting the DVI output to a 2560x1440 monitor? (That doesn't do scaling outside of native resolution). I know very little about how well the Intel HD graphics work.. Thanks in advance!

    I also have an r3610, which is starting to get noisy, so looked at a replacement for it a few months ago. all the forums seem to say that the older versions are much better media players than the newer ones, so I decided against getting one

    good price though, so heat added

    What's the best nettop out there with dedicated graphics?
