Depends on what you want to do, fortunately with the 2502+350s they
can do hardware encoding so you can easily have a slightweight
processor, however if you want to do transcoding of the mp2 files to
mpg4 etc then you're going to want some processor in there that can do
the job easily :) For the 20 euro difference I'd go for power :)
The pundit's have nice large fans in them that are pretty quite and I
don't notice them when watching/recording tv on my 2.67
