I am working with the Acer Aspire One as a combined FE/ BE machine. I think
it will be fine at least for SDTV. This for a netbook which sells for <300
USD. It has a nice form factor, is fairly quiet (not silent) . Also, if
you are traveling, you can just grab it and go as a portable viewer. I
think the next generation of netbooks may be a great platform for MythTV and
