Unlock your Revo with Amazon Prime and Unlimited Streaming!

Alright sure Netflix is amazing and only costs $8 a month, but there is a new competitor in town...Amazon. Alright not new, but big! Amazon is now offering over 5,000 movies and television shows to be streamed absolutely for FREE!!!(if you have Amazon Prime) Alright so Amazon Prime costs $79 a year, but not only are you getting Unlimited FREE streaming of these shows, but you also get Free 2 day shipping on all products shipped by Amazon. I have saved so much waiting time with Amazon Prime that I could never go back. It is a great service and now that they have unlimited free streaming I am locked in for good :)

I reviewed Amazon Prime back in January with it performance on the Revo: http://revohtpc.com/2011/01/14/amazon-vod-review-on-acer-aspire-revo-1600/

New Dell Zino now available

inspiron-zino-hd-410-hero

If you listened to the last Revo Roundup you would have heard Josh talk about his review of the Dell Zino which he received. Dell this week has just launched a brand new Zino all featuring Windows 7 Home Premium, new AMD Athalon processors, DDR3 Ram, and at minimum Radeon HD 4250 for around $350. You can go all crazy and get a AMD Phenom Quad Core with Blu-ray, 6GB Ram, and a Radeon HD 5450 for around $750. They seem even sleeker and sexier. At this price point Acer will really have to step up their game on the new Revos. Check out the new Zinos at at Dell.com, starting as low as $299.99!

New Acer Aspire Revo & Zotac HTPCs

Yesterday both Acer and Zotac announced some brand new super sexy HTPC machines coming out soon. First up is the brand new Acer Aspire Revo 3700.

This machine is packing some serious hardware this time around including the brand new D525 1.8Ghz dual-core Atom Processor, Nvidia's next generation ION platform, 500GB Hard Drive, 4 USB 2.0 Ports, 4GB of DDR3 RAM, VGA/HDMI/ 802.11b/g/n, gigabit ethernet and mini PCIe slot. There is still no DVD drive included here, but the machine looks super sexy. The only problem is the initial price tag is $580, which seems completely crazy when the current dual core Revo is only $330.

Next up is a brand new super duper sexy Zotac HD-ID33 and HD-ID34(250GB hard drive included) and packs a full Blu-ray drive.

This thing looks absolutely beautiful and includes all the same features as the Acer Aspire Revo 3700 but only comes with 2GB of DDR2 RAM, but packs in 2 USB 3.0 ports. The big thing here is the sexy design and  the full blu-ray drive. there is no price point just yet however. Hopefully I can get my hands on one of these bad boys when they are released.

Check out eHomeUpgrade (Revo 3700) or HotHardware (Zotac HTPCs) for more shots and press release.
