Pros Small form factor that fits aesthetically with your other media gadgets. This is, in effect, a cleverly redesigned laptop.
Runs Windows Media Center and Boxee quite well. Can run Moovidia, but not in the 3D mode (ION GPU doesn't have the horsepower).
Cons Keyboard will take some getting used to. It's not for typing more than URLs.
DVD drive is the flimsy kind that comes in a laptop.
Be aware that there are TWO versions of the Revo - one with DVD and the other with Blu Ray. All the prices quoted above a
Summary Definitely worth purchasing for it's intended use, as a Media Center computer. Don't even attempt to play 3D games on it.
Pros Works great for its intended purpose. This type of unit runs Hulu, Netflix, Boxee, etc. in native PC mode at 720P great.
Cons What they said in the review
Summary I own an earlier model with even a less powerful CPU. The point of my review is to say these units work perfectly for the intended purpose of a HTPC. Being able to easily run any PC video on your TV without a lot of setup (WiDi, move a laptop next to the TV, etc.) is great.
For example, one can run the Asia feed of Bloomberg from the Bloomberg website directly on the TV just like watching the US version on cable TV. Can any other set top box do this?
Video at 720P is great. I do not use higher resolution HD because of the limits of my TV.
Pros shape & Function
Cons well..for me..it looks good
Pros Nice slim case design, touch pad/keyboard is cool, Blu Ray.
Cons Processor is weak and memory is small -- s/b at least 2GHz processor and 6GB of memory. I personally would prefer an Intel processor. The touchpad appears to have issues when used in mouse mode. The qwerty keyboard mode appears a bit cramped. Also sho
Summary This is short of what I would want to add to my living room. Add some more hardware to make it "useable" and I would be willing to even pay more for it. I still would want to add some external storage to enable a larger library of videos.
