It might even make sense to use a eee PC, like the 901. Built in UPS. Just need to get one with a HDD instead of SDD.
Tnx, makes sense for me. Prices are the same in my region and I will have portable PC with 901.
Can you pls help me with pros/cons of EeePC 901 vs EeeBox B202 (excluding "portability" of 901)?901 / B202
Size, weight: almost the same
Heat, noise: both are actively cooled but B202 claimed to be very quiet. What about comparison to 901?
Storage: 12GB SSD / 80GB HDD
Video output: VGA / DVI
bluetooth / no BT
LAN 100Mb / 1Gb
WiFi 802.11g / 802.11n
OS: WinXP Pro / Home
UPS: battery / no battery
Other: B202 supports VESA mounting naturally (that is kind of important for me for media centre usage)
What else in general and from linuxmce prospective)?
