    In the UK, Ebuyer are selling the HP G260 mini PC for £99 currently - http://www.ebuyer.com/702840-hp-260-g1-desktop-mini-pc-k8l27ea-abu

    This uses an Intel Celeron 2957U dual-core 1.4 GHz CPU with a 10 execution unit GPU (15W TDP), so quite powerful for HTPC use. It comes with Win 8.1 Bing edition on a 32GB M2 SSD (8GB is a recovery partition, so C: drive is about 20GB), and the internal 2.5 drive bay is empty (but you need to buy a special SATA cable form HP to use it).

    It's fan cooled, but mine is very quiet. 4 x USB3, 2 x USB2, DisplayPort (so need cheap adaptor for HDMI e.g. http://www.ebuyer.com/227491-startech-com-displayport-to-hdmi-video-converter-dp2hdmi2), VGA and Gigabit Ethernet ports.Fitted with 2GB ram as a single SODIMM, so I've added another 2GB SODIMM to take it to 4GB and allow it to run in dual-channel memory mode which boosts the performance.

    Note: no built-in WiFi or Bluetooth.

    Installed MP 1.12 + TV server - quite impressed so far, especially for the money :)
