Had one of these to update wifes lacklstre vaio (but without adding leccy consumption)
very pleased, runs silent, small & discreet vesa fittings to place behind monitor / wall mount without clutter.

http://www.simplyacer.com/Acer_Revo_R3610_655106.html ..we got this model with 4gb ram 500g hard drive for around 258 delivered as I recall but the abve is a different price, posted just so you can easily browse the specs.
it is very diminuitive, comes in a box smaller than a pair of caterpillar boots.

Linux variant available, (Martin)  whistlie

So anyone looking to replace / upgrade / need for small spaces & or compact living / as a tv recorder...
I highly recommend it.
Oh yes, DO NOT go to pc world as it;s around 400 for a much lesser model.
anyone intersted in this i'll try & dig out a link to the actual place of purchase (not Acer)

They are the PC of choice for my wife's charity.

As the IT consultant (unpaid), I have to say I'm blown over by them.

I get the Linux versions and load Ubuntu onto them. Then screw them onto the back of the monitors.

Everyone who uses them is very pleased.

Must be the least trouble computing environment I look after.

My source for the downward spiralling price was  (as usual) Hot uk deals, a fantastic site!
Look on thee & the latest this, that & the other are constantly updated (no spam) browse, & buy, with possible savings through the likes of quidco.
