Cheap nettop. If you have a license for Win 7 then this looks good value - or Ubuntu machine.

EDIT - Now slightly cheaper at 149.01 (98p...)

About £50 cheaper than the Win 7 with Wireless Keyboard also listed on this site.

Not sure what these are like but not being infected with windows is double bonus points.

Looks nice, great value with case and hard drive. My budget system works out as:
GA 525 mobo £65, any 2.5" hdd £25, 2Gb RAM £15, case (re-use-free :)) = ~£105

I win !! :-)

Your mileage may vary and £45 for a case and 'different' set up is probably good value.

Damn, that is a much nicer looking case now my graphic specs are on.

HDMI and optical, may be suitable for xbmclive?

Graphics should cope no?

good price but could do with some user reviews

I'd be interested to here how folk get on using this for xbmc. I use a Revo 3700 at present.

Doesn't sound like it would cut the mustard as a media streamer:

It is a good price - the hardware is ever so slightly better than the average netbook, and for easy use it should be ok.

But I still think that nettops in general are overpriced. After all, they are just netbooks without battery and screen, and those two parts are expensive. 100 pounds would be a more reasonable price, but I have not it anywhere.

sorry, can somebody help. Doesn't say wifi, but it does say Networking •WLAN: 802.11 B/G/N , Is this the wifi? thank you

Yes. WLAN stands for Wireless Local Area Network and the B/G/N are the speeds it supports, N being the fastest out at this present time.

Not just speed as range as well, at the moment the best one is N+ (dual N+, if you have such a router would be advantage).

In the official wifi standards there is no non-sense such as N+ etc... These are all marketing names. What is important is the frequencies it supports and the number of antenna.

One brand's 'dual N+' is another brands 'SuperN'. Name is pointless - specs tell you what you need to actually know.

Looks to be a good base for an XBMC media centre.

Saw this deal this morning on ebuyer, I have been waiting for a good nettop deal to build a xbmc machine.

The only difference I can see between this and the Win7 version is that this has a wired keyboard and mouse v a wireless one. £150 is a good price for Ubuntu or if you have a spare Win7 license.

Faster than a dual core atom:

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

I have a revo 3610 and while i haven't read about this model, to those worried about performance of HD video, I tried XBMC and Ubuntu and actually had better results using windows 7, Power DVD 10 and making the ION do the work...so the processor for WATCHING video was not really an issue. I would imagine that the 9200 could be used like an ION to take the brunt of the work with the right software and HD encoded video.... awaiting the Linux boys coming in to correct me :-)

Worried about the validity of the above bench. It might be the same cpu but everything else is different.

Thinking back to the epic acer 3700 thread. An out of context benchmark like this had us all believing the Acer 3700 was slower than the 3610 until we got some real world benches which showed the 3700 was actually faster.

The emachine has a better CPU than atoms, but weaker GPU than the revo.
Edited by: "mikerr" 21st Apr 2011

Note that this one only comes with wired keyboard and mouse, while Windows 7 version comes with wireless keyboard and mouse

The 9200 isnt going to do Full HD 1080p without some stuttering should be fine on most compressed 1080 material and 720p will be a breeze, but I worry how well the XMBC interface will run, got feeling you wil lget a lot of delay reactions and freezing, the 9200 is rumoured to be a slightly weaker ION for AMD Neo`s.

The 9200 GPU is slightly slower than a Revo ION (9400) so HD playback will suffer as some other people have noted. Also the AMD is a single core so anything that requires more than one programme or thread will improve the Atom score

Good price though if just looking for just a cheap Internet/Word computer or a Linux installed one

If looking for XBMC or HTPC machine would stick with a Revo 3700

I agree...thing is people keep going on about benchmarks but this is a good deal for what most people use a PC for. Ironically, I have a 6 Core machine and yet I actually spend more time on my netbook or watching videos from my revo. Even play football manager 2011 more on my netbook thna PC and it is fine....most people don't care about benchmarks and just want it to work for IE etc I also agree with you...different software performs better on different hardware so one benchmark means not a lot in this case!

Now showing as £229.99 so the Win7 one is cheaper again. Crazy pricing policy...

Your telling me..noticed that as well. Who is going to buy that one when you can get a fully Windows7 kitted one for less...

Now down to £149.01

Pricing is a bit mad.

They put it up to £229.99 again in anticipation of dropping it to £99 tomorrow morning from 9am:

hotukdeals.com/dea…69/

At that price its worth a punt. If I can get one then I will test it against my R3610.

Any1 tried Overclocking, CPU, GPU, RAM and mobo on this machine using NVIDIA SYSTEM TOOLS WITH ESA SUPPORT - Version:6.06????

Any feedback or stable numbers will be much appreciated, thanks??
