The Atom 330 is a first-gen Atom: not recommended.

Oak Trail is the best choice now: Atom Z670 + GMA600 + 3W TDP + multi-OS support

The WeTab (Pine Trail) is also a good choice at 280 euros (or even less on german eBay)

huh ???


Swift do you even have a lmce system running.

Unless i am drastically missing something nvidia is still the best way to go with LMCE.

not to say the other versions wont be better at one point for lmce  ... but for now the first gen atom/ions make the best md's inmho

I agree with TK, my 330 works great.

WRT the Foxconn you may want to search the forums there are a few threads covering it. I believe the NIC is not plug and play but I do not know if anyone has successfully got one up and running

To buy a 3 year old CPU is not a very good idea imho

Please do your homework and setup a lmce system before giving advise on such a specialized system.
The above link is for a pad orbiter not a Media director... again yes someday the systems you point out may be viable and  better.

Just my 2 cents

Hey r u pleased with the power that 330 gives for the work ?
Anyway i found the drivers for the NIC and went tru the steps so i believe it will work ok now ,anyway i'm asking coz i want to take one for preliminary testing ,and if something come up on surface during the tests i will look for other solution.

C'mon friend nice from u but i'm looking for media director solution not orbiter solution ,i have made a list for orbiters and there is Apple's iPad and Samsung's Galaxy Pad but not this.
This time i'm looking for cheap and nice MD's (because it will be few of them)
