if it had gone up in price and they had phoned you and asked you for more money would you have given it to them?

Just thinking back to the days when people were buying PCs for over £1000 that were just about capable of running Microsoft Office and a browser, now we have yokes like this for £60. What a time to be alive!

How much a copy of windows 7/10 will cost on this?
I bought a win7 licence from an ebay seller for a tenner and used it to upgrade to 10. Unlike all the shady set ups, these guys mail you the physical sticker and, if you happen to want the scrap pc it came from you can call round (to Manchester) and pick it up! Also, they've been around for 5 years

Use a wireless mouse.
Or any number of apps on a smartphone.
I personally find a wireless mouse to be the best. You can lay down in bed and use your belly as a mouse mat X)

It's got rubbish 32GB eMMC storage soldered in - it is NOT SSD storage - a lot slower and if it fails you have no means of replacing it. Plus, unbelievably the unit is not even silent - it has a cooling fan which over time will get noisy.

Why else do you think they have to drop the price again to shift it.

Yes I have also bought from this guy if I'm not mistaken. They're not technically permitted to sell an OEM licence without the PC it came from hence offer the PC it came on with should you be one of those b*******ds who believe in this stuff.

I bought one of these for £99 a few months ago.

Nice little device, may want to upgrade the RAM.

Re license, I bought a Win10 license off kinguin for £20, not sure on it's legality though.

the CPU is just about OK:

(2000 is my threshold for me to find a computer useable).

It's £60! More than capable of running Windows, the eMMC is still faster than any HDD.

Everyday use, i would recommend a RAM upgrade, and an external HDD. Acer do offer a HDD addon, I have yet to see it' UK release though.

It would be nice if Acer released an i5 6260U version of this, by which I mean at a competitive price. Bit fed up of Intel barebones NUC computers (which come without memory or storage), where it works out to be much cheaper to buy a similarly spec laptop that has the additional advantage of coming fitted with memory, storage, keyboard, trackpad, battery and screen. Anyway! I can't find this modest spec Acer cheaper, so have some more heat.

Given up expecting my new LG smart TV to behave (the software is horrible) so I'll use this as a media hub. Linux Mint and Kodi/XBMC. Sorted.

Actually it's a good point he/she is making. I posted this just 4 days ago at £79.99 on one of their Daily Deals, which was advertised on their home page.. It's a bit underhand to then slash it by £20 a few days later and not offer any sort of refund for the difference.

Used Kodi on this, it's fine. May even handle 4k, as it does have the Output for it, just don't have any 4k media nor a 4k TV.

It does have a fan, so it's not silent.

Finally, re the remote, ive used cheap remotes to good remotes, eventually i got one of these for my PC.

Allows you to use your TV remote to control Kodi only using HDMI CEC tech.

Use a wireless mouse which is better than a remote.

Or just buy a wireless mouse and keyboard combo. Better and probably cheaper than any all-in-one remote with tiny keys, though it will be bulkier. Plug the dongle into a USB port and away you go. Here are some.

Very true, but to be honest a lot of people here have had success doing this with Amazon and them refunding the difference. Obviously different retailers and very different customer objectives.

Will be kind on electricity than old laptops or PC's with dual NIC..

Yeah I agree, approx 2000 for a CPU to be any real use. Even my 6 year old I3-350M laptop is about 2000.
