Confirmed purchaser General user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
no fan so very quiet. physically small so will fit in almost anywhere and looks tidy. Good Nvidia package so will run most of the software no problem (2011 review). Runs new games (2011) at an ok framerate, and any video formats (720, 1080p, 1080i) Tidy little machine for next to no budget.
Bad points:
Specific model comes with Linux so had to install windows.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Excellent as a HTPC. Would also be excellent as a net top pc. Run fast and is exceptionally good value for money
Bad points:
Perhaps could come with mouse and Keyboard bundle for an extra 20 quid. Not a big issue as I had a few knocking about.

Boyan, Portsmouth Web developer

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Compact, quiet and cool. Installed XP, and it runs quite well. Star Craft II and Devil May Cry 4 with 1440x900 resolution run better than on a laptop with Athlon QL-62, Amd 3200 HD and 1280x800 resolution. Really tough on the outside. There's a great attachment in the box - right now the tiny computer is on the back of my monitor - extremely space efficient. Wireless is powerful and easy to configure - Ralink software tool is handy. Also Ubuntu 11.10 works great.
Bad points:
Drivers for XP are a real issue here. The right pack from nvidia is 15.25, but then an update is still recommended. There is something wrong with the ethernet - after my first install I started off with the wrong drivers, then even windows 7 and linux couldn't discover the card. But soon after, I had to reformat and reinstall, so decided to integrate all nvidia drivers in the XP installation CD (used nlite) and everything magically worked after the installation. With all that said, I have to point out that I don't use the ethernet adapter and getting it working was pure accident.

Raimund, London Software Engineer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
- QUIET.
- SMALL.
- It plays the 1080p video with Openelec XBMC without any problem.
- Ubuntu 11.11 install was flawless and works well on it. (It has huge software repository.)
- Two CPU core.
- SPDIF.
- Reasonable speed for everyday usage.
- Quake3 runs with 30-35fps on 1680x1050 resolution
Bad points:
- I didn't found the package manager to install new software on the original OS (Linpus Linux) (maybe my fault, I didn't know too much about Fedora like OS-es.)
- The Nvidia driver don't works very well in Ubuntu 11.11. (I've turned off the 3D effects on desktop, then it works much better and quicker)
- Unable to play 1080p video on Ubuntu 11.11 (I think because of the Nvidia driver).
- All video play seems unable to use double/tripple buffer on Ubuntu 11.11 and it causes ripped display when something is moving on video. (I repeat XBMC works without any problem.)
- CPU and GPU is not too fast but reasonable
