It's not clear which one you are referring to... the standard Meerkat or the ION. Please have a look at this link...Re: any one has a review on the Meerkat Ion NetTop

The primary difference is that the Ion has nVidia graphics, which gives it better graphics performance, particularly if someone wants to use it as a media center.
A media center that won't play 720 or 1080. Correct.
...and this link...
To err is human, to forgive is very ... dog-like.
I bought a Meerkat Ion last month. I am using at as a media center running XBMC. I can get 1080p via HDMI to a Vizio TV, although I keep it set on 720p to make it better for occasional web browsing from across the room. My only upgrade was 4GB of ram. I have two 1TB USB drives on it. Getting sound over the HDMI took an additional setting, same with getting nVidia to remember I wanted 720p (it kept defaulting back to 1080). Overall I am very happy with the result. I am now working on getting a Streamzap remote to work with XBMC.
I just ordered the Meerkat Ion with 2gb of RAM and the optical drive. I'll probably end up receiving it next week but once is all said and done I'll post a review on it. Just so you know, I'm by no means a Linux expert but I'll do my best!
