Hardware, Embedded Systems A common concern when it comes to Linux on netbooks is that, well, they're hard to get your hands on, and even if you do find one, they often feature lower specifications than their Windows brethren. If yuo fear the situation will be similar for nettops, fear no longer: Acer has given out pricing and specification information on its Revo NVIDIA Ion nettop (the first Ion-based machine on the market), and there's good news for Linux fans.

Same here. I have a small form-factor computer with a smaller capacity internal drive. The files are routed to an external storage device.

The equipment is whisper quiet and the internal temperatures run much cooler using this logic.

Most Windows boxes, the ones I repair for people, run hot and have fans that sound like a military aircraft taking off.
