I bought myself a “Nettop”, or as it says on the box… a “netbox”. haha
Anyway, i found it on newegg, and thought it was cool. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16856119026
But, i found out they just had a sale, so you could get it with 2GB memory for only $120. I was going to buy it for the 169 price, but once i learned about the sale, i got kindof annoyed. So…I bought one from ebay for 120. The problem is, i still had to buy ram and a 2.5″ SATA hard drive for it though…. dang.
But, they should be coming soon, and i can potentially turn this into a multimedia computer, and watch HULU and stuff. I will be using a Linux distro. Probably Ubuntu. I also found this cool DVD burner thing, that’s supposed to go with it. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5609253
It’s smaller than a Wii… Holy crap. I plan to install the HULU desktop client. Dont know how things will turn out, but it’s something fun to play with.
EDIT: Okay, I got everything installed and working. I also bought the DVD thing too. Installed SATA drive, and 2gb memory. I installed Ubuntu 10.04, and it’s pretty cool. I had to update the system to get wireless working though. I installed the Hulu desktop client, but it’s super slow trying to use this over a VNC connection. I think i will need to invest in some sort of bluetooth remote and keyboard to be able to have a satisfiable media center. Otherwise it’s an awesome and extremely quiet computer. …hmmm… maybe experiment with a lighter ubuntu based distro?
