It works but no HD streaming 09/02/2013
Very small, fast machine. Installed windows 7 ultimate 64-bit and everything worked fine after installing and updating the drivers, windows updates, etc. Good packaging. Everything you would need for a set up is included in the box, (except hard drive and RAM). Perfect for everyday computing such as reading email, and browsing websites.
Does NOT stream HD video on Netflix and Youtube. On youtube you can get away at watching 720p video sometimes, but 1080p is not possible at all, very choppy and sound de-syncs. If you search for the processor's model that is in this unit and then add 1080p or netflix on google you will see all the problems it has. It completely chokes on HD video through flash or silverlight. Netflix HD completely not doable. The silverlight plug in won't even allow the video to go in HD sometimes. Very disappointed.
You'd think with this product you would be able to watch HD video on youtube and netflix... because even my old LG G2x smartphone could.. but unfortunately that is not the case. I've read from some websites and other reviews that streaming through XBMC works fine in 1080p but I didn't even bother trying that because one of the main reason I needed these was to be able to watch youtube and netflix in HD. Luckily NewEgg allowed me to RMA the two units i bought, so thank you NewEgg!
