This is on my to-buy list as long as it's below $300AUSD.
Reason? Because I actually need something this small to mount to the back of our HDTV.
My last HTPC build was a bit of a fail.. 5KG was just too heavy I think.
Sure the HDTV was strong enough for it, but the monitor I was going to mount it to as a dedicated touch test platform it was just too heavy for.
[citation][nom]tsnor[/nom]not sure why you'd get this over a c-70 netbook unless price is really different. Guessing price will be around $150 plus $75 for disk/memory plus $100 for windows vs $250-300 tops for netbook.[/citation]
For one thing, it's not very easy to mount a netbook on the back of your VESA TV or monitor.
i've had myself a C-50 fusion netbook for almost 2 years now (not sure how much better this C-70 would be). in spite of the horribly underpowered CPU, it's been a handy little machine and can easily handle blu-ray bitrate 1080p video.
so yes, this nanoPC here would be a great HTPC if all you're planning on using it for is watching movies or typing emails, but don't expect to game with it or have a completely smooth browsing experience.
