John ,

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
compact, fast, excellent value for money, full of features (both hardware and software)
Bad points:
Hard to find Linux drivers for some hardware
Didnt come with any instruction manual. Beginning to understand how to get Linux doing what I want via learning off the internet but some basic info about the difference between Windows and Linux would have helped.

Mike, Lewisham, London SE13

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Small, very quiet, unobrudive, goes under TV in lounge (in cabinet) no problem. Cheapest option great as basic PC. Quieter than PVR! Could do with Supervideo outut on graphics card so can feed main 32inch CRT TV above. Will install when out of warrenty!
Bad points:
Linux (hence cheapness) was not as straightforward to use as MS. Old version included (Ubuntu with Gnome shell) and Youtube did not work until upgraded to Kubuntu 9.04. Still having fun with Skype audio in/mic. Not a lot to do with you guys but a problem for non-geeks wanting instant access to Youtube & Skype (I had to get friends in to help!). Otherwise brilliant and great value.
