we've got more storage (500gb hard drive) & 4gig memory for £267 ?? (from another deal) on our newly aquired Revo, it's a fab machine & thoroughly recommended by this happy chap.

Sorry, but I think the various options at ebuyer represent better value for most users.

No DVDRW.... hardly very useful.

This is the single core processor version?

GeForce 9400 graphics better than the ION one?

The ION is a re-branded 9400m:thumbsup:

I seem to remember the gadget show saying these units have problems with internet streaming! Anyone verify or rebuke this?

DVDRW? How quaint.
These are perfectly useable and useful boxes.

I`ve never had Problems with streaming. There used to be a problem with hi-def Flash video like on youtube.But this has been fixed with the latest version of Flash.

No its smaller brother was. (1gb Ram, 80gb)

Their is a 250gb version on here exactly the same for £189 extra 70gb for £10 and the usual cold voters that can't read have voted it cold. Fickle forum. :thumbsup:

Yes but the £189 one at ebuyer gets you the dual core N330. Think I can live without the extra 70gb of space for an extra core. (before the 'you only get linux', well you only get vista and most people don't want that either.)

This was posted a month ago at the same price and using Vista on a single core Atom CPU will not be fun.

I have added an extra 1GB of RAM, installed Windows 7, updated the Nvidia drivers and installed the 10.1.3 beta of flash. Everything works fine but when I play a video in iPlayer it works for a while and then completely freezes the whole computer and makes a noise like a scratched CD. I have read some stuff that indicates that there may be an iPlayer problem but I wondered if anyone else had experienced the same problem, of course it could be bad RAM but I am not sure if I would get this symptom.

Discovered my problem, Play sent me the wrong memory!

Would it not make more sense to spend another £20-30 for the Acer R3700 - ebuyer.com/pro…579
