    I have currently got a Acer Revo Aspire R3610 (the full-fat one) with the 500GB Hard Drive and 4GB RAM.
    For the past year or so, I have been using it in my bedroom, running Openelec off a rather slow USB 2.0 stick.
    The experience was rather painful – occasional freezes of well over a minute before everything becomes usable again.
    I am thinking of buying a new client for my bedroom as per the below link, but then that leaves me wondering what I should do with the Revo.

    According to the net, they seem rather sought after still and so I might be able to sell it for enough to get something with a bit more pep.
    However, I was just wondering whether there would be any merit in replacing the Hard Drive with an SSD and putting Windows 7 and Mediaportal on it.
    It would be great to hear from anyone using Mediaportal client on one of these.
    As it is only a kitchen device, it does not have to be fantastic quality (I am connecting it to a 19” TV) but I need to know it is good enough to use as an everyday client.
    Any advice would be much appreciated.
