    looking for fastest - mainly office/ photoshop (large files) loading & multi-tasking, best HD watching PC:

    Zino HD (~£525)
    AMD X2 6850E 1.8GHz 512k
    Windows® 7 Home Premium 64bit
    ATI Radeon™ HD 4330 512MB graphics
    6144MB Dual Channel DDR2 800MHz [1x2048 + 1x4096] Memory
    1TB (7200rpm) SATA Hard Drive
    8X DVD+/- RW Optical Drive (DVD & CD read and write)

    or

    Studio Hybrid (~£400)
    Intel Core 2 Duo Mobile processor - 2.0Ghz processor (T5800, 2MB L2 cache, 800Mhz FSB)
    Windows Vista Home Premium

    3072MB DDR2 RAM - 800Mhz
    320GB SATA (5,400 RPM) hard disk
    Slot Load - DVD+/-RW 8x drive

    Am in Uk, so not always the latest PC's or Cheapest prices.

    So which one is it?



    Thanks,

    build your own?

    mini-itx motherboard with good built in graphics (geforce 9300-9400) with a decent intel processor with plenty of ram and storage space would cost you about £350-£400. Will do everything you want it to do.

    I built mine for £340. 2.8 ghz dual core, 4gb of ram, 1tb of hd. 9300 graphics does HD films with no sweat. In this case: http://www.ebuyer.com/product/169877. You may prefer the more stylish cases of zino/hybird. but it will cost you more.

    hey thanks, though yes it is the small form factor that really piques my interests, I want something I can take in a bag when in I wish to visit places - with just an extra wireless keyboard & cables (to connect to someone else's plasma/ lcd screen)... I find laptops restrictive :/
