    I was considering getting a Mac Mini as an HTPC but for $400 less I can get a Revo. Are the 1.6GHZ Atom and ION graphics good for Boxee and light windows games id imagine they are but wanted to know if someone has tried one. Also how hard would it be to upgrade the ram 1GB would not be enough for me.

    For 720p videos, you'll do fine with the Revo. If, however, you want to play 1080p videos, well, ya know.

    the revo is a netbook without a kb and screen. The mac mini is a full computer. So if a netbook can handle what you need it to then the revo will be fine otherwise get the mini
