Offered by e-Buyer, who are currently offering the Revo for a few pennies under £150, this looks tremendous value to our eyes.

A stylish, Linux-powered number small enough to fit on to the back of your monitor, the Revo is powered by an Intel Atom 230 CPU (the single-core version of dual core 330), running at 1.6GHz – perfect for a small home server or media centre.

Users can expect smooth, lag-free desktop playback of HD video (720p and 1080p) and online standard def videos (YouTube, BBC iPlayer or TV Catchup etc), but can expect some juddery scenes if you’re looking to play HD High Definition flash videos off the web.
