Conversations I live in the US and am looking to buy a Nettop PC. Since Nettop PC's are kind of new I thought I should get some feedback.

So far the Acer AspireRevo looks to be a good option. I just wish it were a bit cheaper and had more resellers in the US.

I've never bought from them, but they seem like a nice company.

After doing a little more research, it appears that the ION based Nettops wont be released until mid September or after Win 7 is released.

Other good looking models
Lenovo IdeaCentre Q100 and Q110
ASUS Eee Box EB1012, 202,204 and 206
Asrock Ion 330

That ZaReason Ion Breeze 3770 looks pretty cool. Once again I'm not too excited about the price.

I read that the Lenovo ones will start at $249 and go to $349. For the moment I'm thinking I'll wait till October to make this purchase but if anyone knows of any other nettop devices please feel free to add it.

For the amount of money I want to spend the Lenovo IdeaCentre Q100 looks about right but I'm still shopping since none of these products are available to me yet.

The Q700 pushing $499 has a lot more umphh same as the ECS MD210

It's not an ION but it does have an Intel G43 Express chipset (Intel's response to ION), and a way beefier CPU. Now with all of that I'm almost at desktop price. I don't know, I'm now tempted to get a high end nettop to use as a media center now.
