Ask Engadget: What's the best nettop out there now?

Darren Murph

We know you've got questions, and if you're brave enough to ask the world for answers, here's the outlet to do so. This week's Ask Engadget question is coming to us from Jamison, who can't seem to settle on a minuscule new desktop to handle email, web browsing and the occasional Skype call.
"All of these new nettops have me intrigued. I'm looking for a small, quiet and cheap PC to replace my aging tower in my home office, and all it really needs to do is load Microsoft Office, check email and surf the web. Is there a particular nettop that's better (or a better value) than another? I know it's a rather new segment, but hopefully someone has taken a chance on one already. Thanks!"
Look, we know you're scared to admit that you own a nettop, particularly in front of your hardcore gaming pals. But trust us, there's no shame in using an underpowered machine to handle low-power tasks. Toss your opinions in comments below, and feel free to send in a question of your own to ask at engadget dawt com.
