    Question Newbie - Applogies

    Hi

    I've been looking around the web in an attempt to find a system/parts for a 'Mini PC'. The first hurdle I have hit is that I have got lost in the meanings. Cube PC, Mini PC, Mini ATX, Mini ITX and so forth.

    I have just found the 'The Intel Silent PC' which I think MIGHT be what I'm looking for and was hoping someone could help me out. I figure I should just explain what I need?!

    I want something very small and quiet that I can run Ubuntu for the purposes of self development away from windows. The system will be used for web browsing, blu ray, facebook, work (spread sheet/word processing). It is not required to play games. I intend to plug it into the LAN via a cable and to a HD TV using a DVI/HDMI cable (the small one, not the white one).

    I would like it to run smoothly.

    I quite fancied building something however realised I'm probably going to fall down!

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Steve

    Welcome to our forums

    For your required usage I would recommend this model: http://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/comput...ilent-mini-pc/

    This is 100% silent, very small and can support full HD output to your TV via HDMI!

    Ah yes!

    Great thanks I was thinking this may do the trick, do you know if Ubuntu would run on this system? (not in a virtual environment)

    Thanks again

    I can't see why not - I had a quick look on Google for people mentioning the motherboard (ASUS E35M1-I Deluxe) with Ubuntu - seems there were a few teething problems at first but looks like they have been solved now:
