The amount of discussion on this list about how to get proper HD playback
suggests otherwise.  It seems this is a really difficult issue for a lot
of people.  At any rate, I know my 1.8 GHz Pentium 4 can't do it.  Buying
a machine with the minimum specs for smooth HD playback would, at this
point, result in my MythTV box being the most powerful computer in my
whole house.
