£150 Acer Revo L80: A nettop PC that comes with plenty of oomph

The Acer Revo L80 nettop costs only £150 at Ebuyer’s outlet on eBay and it comes with 150 Nectar points and free delivery as well.

We’ve been a firm advocate of these pint-sized products (essentially desktop equivalent versions of netbooks) for a while now ever since they have carved themselves a well-deserved niche a few years ago.

The L80 is the latest version of the Revo brand and is powered by a fairly new processor, the Intel Celeron 887, a dual-core part that is clocked at 1.5GHz, comes with 2MB L2 cache, a TDP of 17W and integrated Intel HD graphics.

The device supports up to 8GB of RAM (comes with 4GB) and has a 500GB hard disk drive. Other features include FreeDOS OS, support for Dolby Home Theater v4, Wi-Fi, GbE LAN, six USB ports (including two USB 3.0 ones), a card reader, two HD audio jacks, DVI and HDMI video ports as well as two PCI Express mini card slots.

You will be able to shove the device behind a television as its cute looking stand doubles as a VESA mount. Note that the device doesn’t come with an optical drive, a mouse, keyboard or display.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
