Faster than a dual core atom:
http://liliputing.wpengine.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/benches2.jpg
HP Mini 5103 (green) - dual core Atom N550 processor
Acer (blue) - 1.7GHz single core AMD Athlon II Neo K125 processor (as in this deal)
Asus (orange) - 1.3GHz dual core Intel Core 2 Duo SU7300 CULV chip

This looks a decent shout for a Win 7 HTPC for those (like me) who missed out on the Revo 3700 Ebuyer deal (£199 if I remember correctly) and the Amazon EEEBox 1501 one (£249, I think). Ebuyer are doing a decent bundle for anyone who wants an external DVD drive with this (£226 all in).

Anyone using one of these as an HTPC? Reports linked to above suggest it copes happily with HD content, but I'd appreciate some more first-hand reviews. I'd like to stick one of those Freeview HD USB dongles in it (though naturally enough I've also missed the £49 Nanostick deal that was on here a few weeks back - they're £70+ now!).

Ion based on 9400, this a 9200, I have the dual core athlon L325 @1.2ghz as is a fair bit quicker than the dual core atom, however as this is single core I'd be surprised if the atom D5xx isn't quicker in most every day things. No idea what noise is like when things heat up, but if my acer ferrari one is anything to go by, get some ear plugs.

I'd take the revo over this still

It doesn't say that at all. The comparison is with the single core Atom.

"Of course, this is an incremental victory for AMD, as the dual core Atom is expected in early Fall, but at the very least, Intel will have to up the Atom’s performance, if for no other reason than to keep AMD from pulling ahead."

The Acer Revo is now cheaper than 200 quid.

That one comes with Linpus Linux. If you want Windows 7, then the price is £285 for this Revo http://www.ebuyer.com/product/236580

Visit a t****** site then :P Lol

Also, that Revo deal only gives you a wired keyboard and mouse, which aren't much use in an HTPC set-up.

The best review I've found is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=25C0PoZjMfE

Ignore the whole tubby-evangelical-Jesuit thing - the man talks sense! Bottom line is that this machine should be absolutely fine if all you're after is Windows 7 Media Centre and competent 1080p (which I am). He also says it uses very little power and is almost completely silent

I think I'm going to get one.

I own a Revo 3700 and it was a git to get working with xbmc under linux and not particularly simple to get working under windows 7. Without trawling forums I would not have got it configured. I can see this having similar problems but being less supported.

Tend to agree. If you want to put something more than the basic Windows 7 Installation would stick with Revo as there is tons of help stuff out there for XBMC etc. if you run into problems.

XBMC on W7 was plug and play for me although Linux needed some tweaking (Revo 3700)

As to a wireless keyboard and mouse you will in the end need a proper combined HTPC one anyway so that cost is same for both machines. (Wireless mouse with a wobbly board/book on a sofa ??)

For this kind of money you can get a decent entry level PC, which is bound to be much better than an AMD neo. I don't understand why people keep buying these underpowered compact PCs - they are just dragging the market down. COLD!

Because they are more energy efficient and therefore better leaving on continously.. They're much smaller and can be easily hidden away. They are also very very quiet and no one would want a loud fan giving them a headache in the living room. Not to mention it comes with a decent enough GPU to play HD videos.

Right...Will try and stick a normal computer behind my TV...oh and turn the volume up so can hear the film sound track through the fan noise......

No thanks

Reading reviews from various sites it appears that this unit struggles with full HD content. But if you are after a full out of the box low power win 7 machine this looks good.
#19
The utube video claims a 3d mark vantage score of 2063pts for this machine, I've just run the same bench on my windows 7 (2 gig ram) Revo 3700 my score 2180. So on this bench at least this amd machine is not faster than the Revo 3700.
#20
Brilliant deal.
#21
Would this be suitable to connect to a Sony HD TV that has internet?

Could you then access the internet applications on the tv such as BBCiplayer and Youtube?

Would the Pc connect wirelessly to the modem and you could then run a cable to the TV (I think) to use the internet ?

Would it also be suitable and quick enough to download music via ITunes and store the music on the Hard Drive.?

Thanks in advance

Yes you can connect it to your TV and use it to watch iPlayer, etc.

The PC is wireless. You would then connect it to your TV using the HDMI port so in essence the TV becomes a giant monitor for the PC.

Yes, it is quick enough to download music via iTunes over wireless/wired connection to your router.

Again as mentioned, if this can cope with full HD 1080p the its a fantastic little buy! Would like to see some user reviews.
#25
Post 13 here is a user review and from what they say it plays back HD no problem:

Just bought one going on the advice on this thread. Not a bad little unit. So far handles all the HD films I throw at is.
Needed to install the codecs from http://www.cccp-project.net/
As most of my films are MKV format.
Will keep playing with it. But so far not bad for £199 especially with Windows 7 and wireless keyboard + mouse.

Well, i imagine it would be as it seems the 3700 is 'exclusive' to ebuyer, meaning there wouldn't be a great deal about it on the http://www. This one, though a lower profile brand, is being sold in the US too, but thanks to c-net not understanding it's purpose, may be a 'slow burner'.

Its exclusive only in that its sold with Linpus OS...Bit of a marketing thing by Ebuyer and actually better if you intend to install ubuntu or a similar full spec Linux distro as no Windows tax

The actual 3700 is just a natural Dual core progression from the first Revos (R3600/3610 etc.) and is probably the commonest and easiest to install low profile HTPC machine out there. Tons on stuff on the web

Not Sure why the OP had problems was just plug and play once you updated the drivers (which is pretty standard practice, so not really a negative).

Now £198.99 :P

Out the box. Heck no ! I had to kill all programs that are running in background. In xbmc tick the box to tell it to use DXVA and uncheck "Use a fullscreen window rather than true fullscreen" and update the nvidia gfx drivers to get 1080p hd to stop stuttering on my Acer 9700 under windows 7. I also had to turn off Aero in windows to stop xbmc crashing when exiting to desktop. Just pointing this in the hope it helps someone else.
