I’ve been doing a lot of research lately about HTPC’s (Home Theater Personal Computer). After comparing my choices, I’ve settled on what’s pictured below. The Acer Revo is fairly cheap, and from everything I’ve read, plenty powerful enough to do what I need it to do as as media center. I’m going to put Boxee on it, which is supposed to be a pretty good replacement for cable TV. It will search the web looking for sources of TV shows and such.
