    Looking for a couple of PCs/Barebones for work that fit the following list.

    Tiny - very small is good, smaller than a Shuttle hopefully otherwise I'll go for one of them.
    Quiet - Will sit on my desk so needs to be fairly quiet.
    Must take 1 X 3.5" HDD
    DVD-RW Drive
    3 Ghz Processor (Prefer Pentium)
    1 Gb Ram
    Onboard GFX (Prefer DVI)
    Onboard Sound (2CH would do)
    Onboard Lan (100MB is fine)
    No-Need for PCI expansion.

    Basically a very small stylish PC that will replace my vintage 1999 work Pentium III 450 which does everything I need to adequately (exept play movies). Like any decent business PC, the ability to play WM9/Hi-Def material is quite important :D

    I'd like to pay as little as possible to get what I want, but price isn't the first concern.

    Any ideas?

    Cheers,

    Mark.

    Hello Mark,

    How about an Asus Pundit R

    certainly quiet, not sure if it has everything you need though.

    3Ghz would be nice, though not essential. If I can't play those "business" 1080i WM9 titles I need to use from time to time I guess I'll have to do without. Good site though, and a scary amount of options.

    Looks good, will cerntainly consider that one. Can't see what it's missing from my requirements. I did see a PC that was barely bigger than an external DVD drive a while back, something like that (horizontal) would probably look neater of the desk but that's a good little PC I didn't know about.

    Anyone else have any suggestions?

    Cheers,

    Mark.
