For anyone wanting a PC with decent specs that’s quiet and small, the Medion AKOYA Nettop PC is worth taking a look at. It won’t break the speed record but is perfectly adequate for general home and Internet usage.
It features the Intel Atom 230 CPU running at 1.6GHz coupled with the Intel 945GC Express chipset and Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950.
It has 1GB of RAM and a 160GB hard drive – both quantities could leave you wanting more in the long run but hopefully this is upgradable.
The unit also features eight-channel surround sound, Wi-Fi, Gigabit Ethernet, DVD burner, microphone, six USBs, memory card reader, audio jacks for 7.1 channel HD audio, and Windows XP Home.
It measures just 30 x 6.5 x 27cms and comes with a 19-inch widescreen TFT monitor.
Available now priced £349.99.
