I've been using these at work for the past 9 months. The price and performance and lower power consumption work well for our non-profit. We don't ask it to do much but it works very well.

Verified Purchase
I bought this as a very standard internet+word computer, but it couldn't handle graphics very well. basic online flash games would soon make this machine very slow. I couldn't get my hands on the proper ram for it so i couldn't increase.
Apart from that, great concept. I will keep looking at the newer models, mayby one will be worth while

It's hard to beat this deal. The hardware is an elegant little box that's small enough that hang from your monitor. The Linex isn't worth booting into. Have Ubuntu, or your preferred Linux distro, ready on a bootable USB drive the first time you turn it on. It intalls flawlessly and gets the most out of this computer. This is a perfect machine if you are not doing processor or graphics intensive work. Would be awesome for an HTPC setup.

This computer has never been infected with Microsoft, it one of the few "free born" systems! However, I found the linux disto it shipped with to be worthless. I have it running now with Lubuntu, this system is not fast, but it is suitable for web surfing, word processing and other basic computing tasks. This little linux is my only desktop, but I do have a dual booted laptop for actually getting work done.

A nice system, but only for folks happy to install their own linux distro.

I got one of these little Linux based Revos and put Ubuntu on it. I've used Linux for years,so I knew this would be good,especially since a friend was already bragging about his.
It is quiet and fast and very nice indeed! I am writing this using it at the moment and it has replaced my Linux based tower as my favorite machine. I have three friends who also have Linux based Revos and they like them as much as I do.
I highly recommend this for anyone who wants a safe,secure,speedy machine free of virus infections, spyware, mailware and slow downs.
