Dello Zino 410

My HTPC died yesterday. I think the motherboard is dead. So I needed a new Media PC and after a bit of looking around I settled on a Dell Zino HD 410. The price for the mid range model with Wireless and 500gb storage was just under £400.00. My movies are contained on two external 1TB Drives so I wont really be storing that much on the PC's own drive.

I use Media Browser in Media Centre for viewing movies and Firefox for limited internet browsing and Itunes for a bit of music. The Zino will be connected to my 63" Samsung TV and HD Projector via an Onkyo AV Receiver.

I bought it mainly for its small form factor and the reviews I read were mostly compimentery so hopefully it will work well doing what I want.

If anyone has this PC I would welcome their comments.

Power getting to the board, but not a lot else was happening. I'm not very computer literate as to the insides of PC's but googling my problems it looked as if there was a motherboard problem.

Anyway too late now as Zino was ordered yesterday.

I think I would have purchased a £50 motherboard before spending £400. The Zino looks nice though.
