Seems quite expensive for that capacitor, but I suppose you could sell the Revo on some auction site to try and scrape back some cash.

Stop posting Revo deals!

My will power is weakening. I know I'm going to end up buying one.

From what people say on this link, you can run Adobe CS3 under Windows 7:

You should be able to run Adobe CS3 on almost anything but if you are thinking of doing a lot of work on it, it may be better for you to get something with more ram 2gb I think is really the bare minimum.

there is a silver label in an indent at the bottom, you have to break that and unscrew the screw then slowly pull apart one of the sides (there are clips all around, but if you don't undo the screw first you will have a very hard time trying to pull the side apart like I did :p )

This case is a weird shape hard to tell where everything is when it is opened like this but I think the indent is next to the hard disk on the right of the photo. you find the screw under the silver label.

sorry voted cold as this is perfect as a media centre as i would run xmbc on it

also http://www.ebuyer.com/product/172706 £239.99 without codes with win 7


You voted cold as your use for this is different from someone elses? On the merits of the deal alone its effectively £30.14 more you get a Win7 lic and a wireless keyboard and mouse. I think both deals are hot and I'm even tempted by the Win7 version despite the fact that I'm likely to want to xbmc as well as Windows.

http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/603295/ebuyer-acer-the-aspirerevo-r3600-wi


cheaper but single core rather than dual core, no optical out (this does), 1gb ram rather than 2gb, 160gb Hard disk rather than 250gb, plus no Windows 7 also no keyboard and mouse are wired and not wireless.


the deal below is for the same as the one from maplin but no Windows 7 also keyboard and mouse are wired not wireless (for about £30.15 less or £25.41 if you use Topcashback or Quidco)
http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/602739/acer-aspire-revo-r3610-atom-n330-du

If you were to install Windows on that, you will have to BIOS mod it. from what I can see this is the cheapest deal for the Revo r3610 (dual core version) with Windows 7 pre-installed.

£30 Gary......... Never count Quidco - the boogers never pay me out! I ordered the R3610 without windoze and wireless KB and mouse. Id have prefered that. Dunno why, I was convinced my one at £199 did have this KB. Too late now. It arrived today!


I donno about Quidco (prefer Topcashback because they dont charge you £5 every year) but with Topcashback you can contact them and they will sort it out for you.
#16
Okay Revo dealhunters answer me this;

If i got this deal (250GB, 2GB RAM) Where and how much would it cost (cheapest, best quality) to upgrade to 4GB RAM.

Reason i ask is that the 4GB, 500GB HD model is £280 (cheapest) but am not interested in the bigger harddrive.

Would it be more than £50 to bung 2GB more RAM into it?

I believe the memory config is 2 x 1GB; max size memory modules for this I believe are 2GB costing about £35. You do the maths...

I think Musicrab is right about 2x1gb, DDR2 ram prices has almost doubled recently I think the same goes for 200-pin (laptop ram sizes which this uses).
Crucial is currently selling 2gb ram for this machine for £35.24, remember the ram in this machine is 800mhz fsb (DDR2 PC2-6400) and I think same goes for the £280 version you mentioned (some cheaper ram you find may be 667mhz fsb or lower, if you mix it in with the 800mhz it will both run at the lower speed)

If you really need 4gb (i.e. for Adobe Creative Suite or something) then go for the £280 version plus u get a bigger hard disk (500gb 2.5" SATA usually cost about 60£ with or without an external case)
#21
thankyou.

I'll get the £280 one.

My only other question is does this come with Windows 7 32bit?

As i've read it's better for XBMC purposes with 32bit rather than 64bit.

this comes with Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit, one other thing to note, depending what you main usage will be, £280 is close to £300 there will be other machines/deals around that price which may be better, have a look around. :)

£271.89 is only if you go through Topcashback or Quidco when you order, after about 2-3 months when everything clears(the wait is not a problem if you order a lot on the Internet) you can transfer it to your bank or PayPal.

:p not allowed to post these as deals but only as a side note I think

what is an engineering sample?

http://www.trustedreviews.com/pcs/review/2009/06/05/Acer-Aspire-Revo-R3600---nVidia-ION-Nettop/p1

"In the box, meanwhile, you get a wired keyboard and mouse - though regrettably our engineering sample didn't come with these, so we're unable to tell you much about them......"

Ebuyer should replace it right?

I've just bought the 500gb, 4gb ram r3610 from pricelover.com for c.£265+postage (reassured because the head office is just down the road from me). Think the extra £30 for double the RAM and double the storage was quite a good deal. I might have been suckered in to this (who needs that much anyhoo?) but this appears to be the top of the line revo. All the buzz around the product on here (especially all the techies talking ubuntu and xbmc - neither of which I understand) means that people think it's a good product, and for that reason, I'm in.

I've looked at every possible permutation for a revo, this seems a pretty good deal for the 2gb, 250gb r3610 with windows 7 (perfect for idiots like me who can't be bothered to look into how linux really works, which is undoubtedly to my detriment!)

Hot!

lol, was your footy team good then?
#31
what I don't understand is why don't people just use a PS3 or buy a PopCorn A200. It is much cheaper. Better still find a cheap Apple TV and hack the damn thing and get support via all the usual places.

Thats the one im wanting the best price for (500GB HDD 4gb RAM)
How does oyyy.co.uk stack up against pricelover.com?

Be very careful when buying a Revo as to whether it's advertised with having WiFi 'N' or not...

...I bought a Revo 3610 with Linux from the Ballicom deal that was posted on here a few months ago and despite it being shown as having 802.11b/g/n, the onboard WLAN adapter only supports 802.11/b/g. This can be a real deal breaker if, like me, you plan to use it as a media centre and want to wirelessly stream HD content.

From the research I've since done, it seems that any UK Revos pre-loaded with Linux are 802.11b/g only; it having a wired keyboard & mouse is also an indication that it will probably won't support 802.11n.

Because it can do so much more? These will play EVERY format under the sun which the PS3 and Popcorn don't. Then if you fancy a browse on the internet, cool no problem, fire up MSN. For small HTPCs these IMO can't be beaten for price

danmc, I don't think it is an engineering sample, I just checked the three that arrived today all three had the quality assurance re-patched three times, I think I was upgraded or downgrade by the supplier (probably due to the change of demand on different models) and then sold to Ebuyer for a lower price (giving Ebuyer this exclusive deal) from the old specification label below the new one it shows 320gb hdd windows 7 64bit, I could not make out the rest.

Everything seems to be in place in all three boxes, will test them later.

(if any one is wondering, this is about the £199.99 r3610 Linux and not this deal)

If having wireless N is that important to you, you can always buy a "mini pci-express" (dont confuse this with the mini pci) and replace it, all the antenna and antenna sockets are already in place.

this is an example ( 802.11a/b/g/Draft-N ) £16.37
http://www.ebuyer.com/product/149423

you can even replace it with 3G, Broadcom HD decoded (not needed though already got Nvidia ION), solid state memory, Intel Turbo Cache, TV card all sorts.

personally I would use the 1Gigabit connection for HD streaming (wouldn't it be like a big microwave using the wifi?) :p

Everest and core temp say it's an (es) engineering sample, I've had bad experiences withes's in the past.

If you get chance could you check what your Idling temps are in core temp mine are around 74c under 0% load.

Could you fit a low profile TV card into this? Or even a low profile HD sat card...if they exist.
