And I'm suppose to understand all of that ?  :big:
The only part I understood was Windows XP   :mutley:
But your comment on the warm factor would scare me as how would something like that survive in the south's hot and humid enviroment. Heck we can even keep cool puters from getting hot. Anytime I hear warm I think about wiring to small to handle the current going throught it. Since CPU's are finely connected dios then it would be a concern for a short life.

But I like the Ideal behind the concept. Something like that would fit well in a whole house cat 5 wiring set up even if it does have wireless.

But... whaata I know  :as:

I might want to mention this..
Theyve been having problems with Driver updates.. A new driver will install and the audio will stop.. or a NIC will fragment.
The work around for updating drivers is to uninstall the driver and the related software.

BIOS as far as I know it hasnt been available for an update... AND i it does come available...... which one would you use the ACER or MSI bios update.. So I'll hold off on that for a bit...

The heat seemed to drop a touch esp. under the load I had on it today using HULU that was early this morning.
The video wasnt great (choppy)till I set Adobe Flash to use HARDWARE acceleration and bumped the cache to max..
Im not 100% that part of that problem was with the new Firefox.. So we'll see..

HEAT again: the HEAT to the CPU isnt real bad in fact a Intel Atom can handle 70C which is pretty warm.. On the other hand I have had this thing running in a 73Degree F room and in most offices it should do ok..
Most of the Tests done (by others) on this thing was to heat it up and it kept up at about 65 to 70C
Having that type of heat on the Hard drive might lower the life on that and its a big reason that I make clones of the original drive (using Acronis)
Buggy try to keep in mind the Mother board is about 8 inches by 8 inches its different engineering where resistance levels arent displaced as much as the big old boards and its not a old style AMD... I tested a P4 about 3 hours before I remembered to plugged in the fan

Im gonna let ASUS Eee box and ACER Revo work out there issue with Drivers and see where it takes it..
When I deliver this one to the nice dirty marina I'm thinking about getting one of these for the 40 inch Insignia TV and one to connect to the TV.. The object is really to be able to bring down the Electric Costs over all and still be able to surf get email and work.. with an occasional movie ;D

I didn't see a Fan setting in the bios and will look next time I reboot.
I did add a Wireless USB Hawking-tech card to a with a USB hub and disabled the internal  NIC threw Windows and will try to disable the NIC in bios just to see if it makes a difference in the heat. Then I'll take a look to see if that fan has a higher RPM it can run at. Right now the FAN seems ok and real quiet at 2556rpm. Not sure if it can be pushed to 3000rpm and if it was able to will that have a negitive affect on the fan.
Remember there's no Fan on the CPU and only on the GPU. Intel has done a great job on not needing a fan for years. I wouldnt want to run some of the Bigger CPU's from Intel that way, they slow down as they get warmer.. The 233 1.5 Atom seems to like the heat.
Since my original post the Temp's have gone down a touch and that might be that the MSI/ACER motherboard finally burnt in..

Added items
Hawking Tech wireless NIC
USB Hub
Wireless Microsoft 3 button Mouse
Wireless Microsoft Keyboard
Speakers
I think Adding a Gig of RAM might help add a little speed.

Did I mention I'm sitting 15 feet away from the 50" Sony TV / Monitor typing this..

The version of Linux you worked with is considered a very stripped out version I think I woulda tryed a something different considering most of the hardware if not all the hardware is supported by other flavors of linux...

This week I'll be packing this thing up to test in a couple offices and take to a satillite office to see how well it VPN's in accross town to another bloated office.
From there its probably gonna make its 3way to its home at the Marina..

If I get lucky I can order a few of these before the prices go up some more.. My personal; opinion is you can get a lot of machine out of off lease or refurbished machines that might just blow this thing away for the price.. BUT the object is to save space and lower the electric bill..

Most bigger Desktops will average a 60 to 80 Watt draw.. This is 20 Watts and the fact that it can be hung on the back of a monitor helps reduce the space and wires on the floor

BRB on that Bios question
