Found this when googling around for info and thought it could be interesting: http://www.netbooklive.com/best-nettops-cool-mini-desktop-pcs-with-good-value-for-money-2835/

Also, does anyone know if any of the ION 2 nettop computers (like the Asus EB1501) support WiFi on 5GHz channels? I've not had much success with video streaming 2.4GHz in my apartment building, although that was with the Hauppauge MVP that basically ran out of memory due to too many MythTV recordings...

Does 2.4GHz work well for SD/HD recordings over the MythTV protocol when there are many devices around?

I haven't tried 802-11N  but I've tried B, G and A (on 5Ghz) and never found a wi-fi solution that has sufficient bandwidth to make a good  enough connection to watch video with DVD (or higher) resolution without dropouts.

There's only about 2 other wifi networks in range of my house so I'm fairly sure that traffic collision isn't even a factor.  I remember when I used to live in an apartment complex, there were at least 10 other wifi networks in range, so I guess your situation might be broadly similar and that even with 802-11N it won't be good. Even if you get sufficient bandwidth, It only takes someone in the complex to turn on a microwave or something and you get a momentary dropout.

Just go with wired. Its way the best bandwidth and always dropout--free.
