Re: Best configuration for a simple small factor
I have a netbook running winxp and it is really not that bad .Perhaps go to a local bestbuy/officemax etc and play around with a netbook and see if it feels enough for you.Those boards are pretty similar to a netbook, except the cpu is a bit better.And the screen resolution is not very high on the netbooks.
Most in the store have a 270 atom.
Otherwise the zotac you can put a better cpu and the graphics are better.
Not sure how you are going to use external ps.Better to get a case with a ps from a reputable case mfr where you know the ps is good.
