It has DisplayPort out so if you want to connect a television a DisplayPort to HDMI adapter should do the job.

It's soldered so assuming you bought a Broadwell ULV BGA somewhere else (ebay*) then one of the companies that fix NVidia GPU issues may be persuaded to unsolder it and solder another CPU - but that's likely going to cost as much as the box + CPU itself cost. (* yes there are BGA Haswells ULV on sale, have not seen Broadwell but should be soon)

Pity ebuyer dont match the price, free delivery means I could get it for tomorrow

Nice. Going to be a few annoyed people who bought this for £120 from the recent ebuyer deal that got super hot.

Ebuyer didn't offer me free next delivery on the HP but did on the lenovo the previous week, but have cancelled now and ordered from Dabs and saved £20, also got free delivery from Dabs - Thanks OP

Nope. It will need a rebirth.

Looks like it's designed to be a thin client.

Is windows activated on it or do you have to buy a licence?

How does the processor in this compare against the quad core atom in others ?

Yes, it's a fully licenced Windows 8.1 installation (with recovery partition), the licence (and activation) is tied to the PC though, you can't install it on another PC.

Passmark for the Celeron 2957u is 1528, passmark for the Atom Z3735F is 887, making this around 70% faster.

What means "with Bing 64-bit" ?

Would be interested to know what performance figures the 32 GB M.2 SSD gives compared with the EMMC supplied in a lot of the Wintel boxes.

OK, The SSD in the HP 260 is a Sandisk SDSA6MM-032G-1006, CrystalDiskMark 4.0.3 gives it the following performance figures : SeqQ32 read 394 MB/s write 88 MB/s, 4KQ32 read 28 MB/s write 13 MB/s, Seq read 403 MB/s, write 84 MB/s, 4K read 13 MB/s write 12 MB/s

The only eMMC I have is a Samsung MBG4GC 32GB in an HP Omni 10, CPU is an Atom Z3770, running 32bit Windows 8.1. CrystalDiskMark 4.0.3 run on it the following performance figures : SeqQ32 read 157 MB/s write 38 MB/s, 4KQ32 read 29 MB/s write 7 MB/s, Seq read 87 MB/s, write 38 MB/s, 4K read 11 MB/s write 6 MB/s.

For comparison, a standard 500GB SATA laptop drive (5400rpm) in the HP 260 gives the following CrystalDiskMark 4.0.3 performance figures : SeqQ32 read 122 MB/s write 121 MB/s, 4KQ32 read 1.1 MB/s write 0.8 MB/s, Seq read 122 MB/s, write 121 MB/s, 4K read 0.5 MB/s write 0.8 MB/s.

As you can see, the Sandisk SSD in the HP 260 G1 is significantly faster than the Samsung eMMC disk.

Thanks for the info.

The CrystalDiskMark shows that the SSD will be significantly faster than pretty much all of the Z3735 devices, so overall performance should reflect this.

Was able to cancel mine today and buy this.

is the SSD upgradeable?

This looks good as a replacement for the ugly big box I've currently got plugged into my TV, to watch films, play music, etc. And for 100 notes it's a good deal too. Hot. One thing though, would someone please provide a link to a displayport to HDMI cable adapter for us technically challenged. Thanks

Here's one (it's the one I'm using with my HP 260 G1), cheaper ones are available.

Cheers cjed

Confused. Does that one do audio too?
Edited by: "Loopijuce" 16th Jun 2015

If I could get VMware ESXi on one of these I'd be all over it. Sadly I think the realtek network adapter wouldn't play too nicely and the expandability is limited. Shame, as I'd love to have this box as an always on multi-use playground.

Been weighing this one up on eBuyer against the Lenovo E50 offer. I think for under £100 this is impossible to ignore. Thanks OP

So AC3 wouldn't work (I believe it's compressed) and some of my mp4's wouldn't work, and obviously mp3. I suppose that means getting a £20 cable.

No all audio will work, that's just the 'top' spec it supports, it's the computer is the one doing the decoding (unless you tell it not to).

Has anybody else not received a order confirmation from DABS yet? I ordered one of these earlier (using Paypal payment guest option) and I've only received a paypal confirmation (without any product description under item).
