New and Improved Features

With hardware acceleration on, this system is 11 seconds faster than the ASRock ION3d Atom powered system we reviewed last week. With acceleration off however, the AMD processor powers through the encoding in 8 minutes and 39 seconds compared to 17 minutes and 45 seconds with the Atom, showing the huge gulf between processor power.

Cyberlink GPU hardware acceleration manages to shave 2 minutes and 21 seconds from the CPU generated time, a 35% saving.

    Very nice units, a little like the mac mini, but more colourful and more powerful.

    Surprised how nippy those little AMD processors are. very capable indeed, much better than ATOM

    The lower end models are good value, but the higher quad core with bluray is expensive. over 800 quid would get me a mega gaming rig.

    Fl0 – you pay for the size reduction, remember that. this isn’t a gaming system, its a media system with a focus clearly on size and looks for people who want something sexy for display.

    Interesting looking little thing, seems to be everyone is making these kind of pcs lately. I can understand why, with familes having a computer in a main room,. some of the full size cases take up far too much room.

    Looks ideal for media, but I think I prefer the ASROCK ION 3d system as it is much cheaper and comes with bluray. if it handles 1080p thats all most people will need.

    This AMD processor is much better than the ATOM, but as the reviewer says, the cost is more power consumption. For media, I think the ASROCK is the better deal as its cheaper, £399 with bluray, smaller and takes up less power under load. can still handle bluray discs and 1080p streaming no problems.

    For a general purpose PC this Dell unit is better. I can see a lot of students liking it.

    Zardon can I confirm – the top panel removes with a b utton press, but under it, you need a screw driver to get access to things like the drives?

    Funnily enough I was thinking the same. the button concept is great, but why have everything else under a screwed panel? whats the point of the button? just to change colors?

    I really dig this system, not sure id buy one though. surprised how good the AMD chip is compared to the ATOM. I know AMD dont have a low power processor like Intel right now, but it seems well worth the extra power drain for those performance gains. maybe on a laptop atom makes a bigger selling point ?

    No HDMI 1.4.
    No 3D capability
    Sony plans to have 40% of TVs next year to be 3D enabled
