**************************************************
UPDATE - 10/21/2010

This HTPC is still running fine after almost a year with daily use. A few additions to my previous review:

1. HDMI Audio - The audio channel mapping across HDMI is wrong. The nvidia driver has swapped the side and rear surround channels. To work around this, I am now using the optical out for audio, which is handled by the realtek driver and maps the channels correctly. 5.1 audio seems fine, while the support for 7.1 audio is another matter. I haven't been able to confirm as Media Center doesn't seem to know how to test 7.1.

2. NETFLIX/Silverlight - While Netflix has normally worked flawlessly through Windows Media Center on this unit, the addition of HD streams from Netflix doesn't work well. Apparently Silverlight, the control that Netflix uses to render video, doesn't support FULL hardware acceleration. As a result, the stream has to be manually forced back to standard, or else stuttering and choppiness will occur.

**************************************************

The only reason I don't give this five stars is that it doesn't come with Windows 7 like the Acer Revo 3610 does for $29 more.

With that being said, if you have your own OS to put on this little gem, then consider it worthy of 5 stars and save yourself the $29. I don't consider the lack of the wireless keyboard/mouse combo a factor because the set included with the Acer isn't really useful for a HTPC.

The Pros:

* Small form factor - sleek look, packed with capabilities.
* Atom 330 + nVidia ION - a match made in Heaven.
* HDMI out.
* Built in N Wifi.

I recently had a chance to compare this Zotac MAG to the to its most popular competitor from Acer (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0030L3ASU?tag=a52-20&ie=UTF8) and I have a bit to say about both. I've broken down my comparison by specific sections, detailing often-overlooked characteristics of computers.

As someone who has been involved in mini-PCs, having owned one since ASUS first started vying to draw attention away from Apple's still-visually-unchanged Mac Mini, I hope you find my review helpful and that the insight I share positively impacts your buying decision.

=== OPERATING SYSTEM ===
You may have noticed that no operating system is included with this unit. While some may see this as a limitation or a caveat, true HTPC junkies know that the best home theater programs are truly found on Windows. Windows Media Center is a decent looking application and it indeed works, but it has limitations (mostly due to the legalities of Digital Rights Management). Open source applications like MythTV, XBMC and Boxee (the latter two being front-end only, meaning no recording capabilities) give you a bit more freedom with what you can do with your media, including flexibility and where your media is viewed (e.g. on an alternate computer, media extender, burned to DVD, transferred to a mobile device, etc).

So, there's a bit of logic to the exclusion of an operating system such as Windows 7 with this unit. But if you're still a sucker for Windows, the least I can do is save you a bit of money by suggesting you get the OEM edition (32-bit: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002NGJO92?tag=a52-20&ie=UTF8 or 64-bit: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002NGQLSY?

For a HTPC this is great. Small almost silent and powerful enougth for XBMC, Boxee, and Hulu Desktop with newer Flash 10.1 all while running Windows 7.

The only issues I have is that it doesn't come with an OS and then It must be installed with a usb device. Not a huge problem for me but for others perhaps.

Also while it does have a fan and make a little noise I feel that doesn't matter as the fans on my sata external drive is louder than the actual pc.

For the cash and size this is a perfect machine for me.

After receiving this 2 days after I ordered it (great service Amazon!) I pulled the existing RAM out & upgraded it to 4GB, replaced the HD with the Intel X-25M, 80GB SSD, and loaded Win7 Premier & MS Office 2007. I'm very satisfied with the speed of the machine and all of its features. Its only drawback, and the reason I didn't give it 5 stars, is that I found the fan to be a bit too noisy for my liking. This PC is normally operating about 2' from my face, so "any" fan noise is an issue. YMMV. The SSD is configured for the OS only, and all my data is on a 64GB Kanguru flash disk, plugged into the eSATA port. This combo works very well and is at minimum, 2x faster than a standard USB flash disk.

I run this with a 24" HP monitor (the LP2475W) via the HDMI ports and the text is crystal clear, as are graphics and any multimedia files. I haven't found anything it can't do, and do well. Now if I could just get rid of that fan noise.....

My only other suggestion/wish would have been for Zotac to offer this as a true "bare bones" unit, without any RAM or HD, so that people could build it their own way. The pair of 1GB DRAM's, and 160GB HD that were pulled from this are now surplus, and are useless to me, so they'll soon be on eBay.
