      not all that great.. while it is nice to have all that in a little package liek that I noticed that this one uses a Cyrix(Media GX) 233 MHz CPU.

      IIRC the media gx was the all in one cpu/moptherboard that does the video/audio/whatever else in addition to the normal processing on there so it was weaker than the PR233 desktop cpu

      now having said all that I still think it would be a fun toy but I dont think it would be all that great the way it is not for a mobile mp3 player in the car if you are ever thinking about Divx and I am not even sure if it will play DVD movies on that processor

      now I could be all wrong and this could be a new version of the media gx line that I have not heard of that does great things but I dont think that it is.

          This CPU cant do DVD but it does have MPEG1 hardware so VCD would work well. I'd ask if there is a PCMCIA dvd decoder card with it because there wouldnt be much point in having the drive without one.
