HTPC - Home Theater PC - is a dedicated computer that is hooked up by HDMI to your TV to handle things like browser-only content. It needs to be small, quiet and powerful enough to render 1080p content.

I thought I'd found a good candidate in the Apple Mac Mini - but it turns out from reading user groups and other posts, that this little guy whines a lot when he's hot. Actually, his fan revs up to hurricane-force when the video processor is working overtime on streaming video.

I'm surprised that no-one has really addressed this gap in the market - it shouldn't be hard to create a box that does what I need - and as more people migrate from cable to alternative media, the market will only grow.
