      Very helpful



      Great for users who only do simple tasks ie browsing, emals.

      I am a gadget geek but recently, the main factor when buying a new gadget is power consumption. I have had the Acer Revo for around 2 months and it cost just £200 new.

      Firstly, this PC does not make any noise like my old PC which sounds like a jet engine. The Revo is silent, its very nice and I think this would be great for when working in an office because I don't like the noise of lots of PCs. Its not loud but the small low buzzing noise can be annoying. The Revo is silent because it has no fan.

      The Revo is a very small box, you could probably fit 15 of them into my old PC box. It does not have CD/DVD drive but no one uses them these days! The Revo comes with a wireless keyboard and mouse which feel ok, however I would upgrade them to something better unless you are only going to use this PC not very often. You can also attach the Revo to the back of a monitor, free-ing up desk space.

      The Revo has a low power Intel Atom D525 1.8Ghz Dual Core processor and 2GB RAM. My old PC had an Intel Pentium 4 3Ghz processor and 1.5Ghz. After using the Revo, its around 30% faster.

      Now the kind of interesting part lol:
      The reason why I bought this PC is that because it consumes only 20-30W unlike my old PC which consumed 120W. The old PC was not some extreme specification, it was just 5 years old old and I still read that the average PC consumes 100W.

      A saving of 100W per hour. I use my PC a lot so around 60 hours per week equals 60,000W saved per week. Or 312,000W per year!

      If I pay 13p per kwh of electricity which is around the average, this saving in electricity is equal to £40.56 a year.
      If I have the PC for 5 years, then this saving has covered the initial cost, which is why its 'free'.
