I have had the Zino HD for a few months. The ati4330 graphics score a 5.9 on windows 7. While I am not a gamer the lowest powered ati dual core cpu is faster than I thought.

I dumped pay tv 2 years ago and can find a lot of content on the internet. Zino a 90(out of 100) Many nettops don;t have a dvd player. Personally I wouldn't buy one without the dvd player.
good idea but stupid implementation
This is daft. If you connect to an LCD TV with DVI converted to HDMI the TV will expect to find video and sound on the HDMI connector. It won't find sound (cos DVI is video only) and it won't look for sound on the other inputs. You'll have great pix but no sound.
That's a very good point bob, although my TV has the option to manually select a sound input also (LG - model number escapes me!)
Finally.. NO OS option!.. But audio...?
About time they started releasing a NO-OS option of cheap net-tops like this. I have an MSDN license, so I'd be greatful to receive this little critter with NO-OS and save a fair few bob! Not sure about the DVI-D however.. not quite sure how that'll deal with audio :-(
