I think I may have found the computer I would have recommended for my grandmother. In fact, I think it would recommend it for my parents.

I would have to play with it some before expanding my recommedation, but I think that I would recommend it for most anyone who wants a home desktop machine, who's not doing heavy software development, heavy video editing, or playing super-graphics-cards games.

The no-moving parts, if it breaks, they ship you another one and you've lost nothing, is pretty cool.

And literally cool is that it's silent, and only draws 10 watts. The annual power bill for a desktop machine can easily be greater than the purchase price.

My worry would be that it has been idiot-proffed to the point that it is hard to add software that was not already included. Are you planning on getting one and playing with it? I would be interested in hearing more if you do, as that looks like it would make a nice always-on internet terminal.

I'm skeered that my data will wind up on their servers. But other than that... I LOVE the silent part of it.
