I like flash myself. but then again I am an Adobe Flex developer so I would.
And Mac's Core2 Duo does pretty well with flash.

I originally started with an ION system but at the time Hulu was more
important than Myth.  I didnt have my myth system up yet and we watch
However I went through a lot of frustration with huludesktop and
Remote controls and then when I finally had everything working I took
the ION system to my brand new 1080p TV and watched it stutter.

I agree that $700 does buy a lot of PC these days.  But there really
is a lack of Out-of-the box HDMI/IR PCs out there running something
along the lines of a Core 2 Duo. And the Mac is surprisingly quiet.
Much quieter than the ION system.
