"you have what can only be described as a disappointment."





Yep, starting with the slightly disingenuous name; lack of Nvidia ION platform & graphics. Plus the noise etc. I was almost excited on first sight of the article, but now think a laptop would do the job I had in mind.

Talk about confusing branding, I expected a review of an ION system and it ended up being a dull Atom system with nothing much extra from every other system out there apart from the dual core CPU...

When is an ion not an ion?





When it has a neutral charge!





I'll let myself out...

@smc8788 & TheLostSwede


as I'm sure you know, is there any difference between a "neutral ion" and an atom?

an ion is a charged species, an ionic species can be anything from a single atom (plus or minus electron(s) to give the charge) up to quite large molecules..... an atom is a single unit containing a nucleus of proton(s)and possibly neutrons(s) surrounded by a cloud of electron(s)

strangely, Play.com lists the "non-wireless" Windows version of the Revo as "in stock" with the other 2 variants (wireless Windows and 8GB Linux) due on the 18th...





The name of this disappointment may be confusing, but as Martin points out, a neutral Ion is an Atom so it is fitting in a way...
