If you have lots of $$ to spend, I would look into
http://www.vidabox.com/. Talk about pre-configured. Unfortunately,
they are Windohs, but their hardware looks pretty cool; cases made out
of heat sinks and completely fanless for silent operation. I would be
interested if anyone has done a dual boot with one of these things and
On a bit of a side note, has anyone successfully dual booted a Vista
machine yet? But I digress....
If you have cable, you'll want to be sure to get a tuner that can handle
QAM for digital broadcasts and I didn't see any mention of that at the
Vidabox web site, but I'm betting they will do it.
They also come with HDDVD and/or BlueRay DVD readers. A couple of them
even come with one of each! $$$$$$, but should be ready to just plug
in. Something to be said for that.
