They generally get smaller, more power-efficient, and quieter-but they never seem to get faster. Take eMachine's ER1402 machine, for example. This unique-looking, pedestal-mounted machine is the epitome of the original "nettop" concept: a low-power PC designed almost exclusively to browse the web. And that's about all you can do with its single-core, low-clock chip."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/wpt/auto/1290366208.usr11334.jpg" style="border: #d2d2bb 1px solid;" /></p><p>Nettop PC's are a bit of a hit and miss affair depending on what you want to use them for.&nbsp; This one from eMachines&nbsp;is a single core unit and due to&nbsp;that it&nbsp;isn't really powerful enough to be used as a media center PC, but as a simple web browsing device it should be fine.&nbsp; There are so many options out there you really need to decide what you want from a small pc like this before you purchase.</p>
