    That AMD unit looks like a great candidate for an HTPC.
     
  3. Given the (un)availability of the raspberry pi, I'm thinking in going towards a mini itx form factor pc, I know that they're different animals, but the prices is a little too high, for the early adapters, which I'm not =/

    I'm playing with my R-Pi now, and while it is very cool, there are still some serious caveats if you are intending to use it as a media-centric system. For our household, lack of Netflix streaming capabilities is killing adoption. I'm finding other fun tasks for the Pi, while I wait for access to one of the new VIA APC boards, which may show a little more promise for what I want - the features stack up: it conforms to the micro-ATX form factor, can drop into a standard micro case, comes with Android onboard out of the box, and is only $49. Hoping it lives up to my expectations!

    Yes, it's been around, but it's still hard to get. They are catching up to demand finally, but it took months and months to get mine, and I was an early orderer. I think there is still quite a lead time on them if you order now (6-10 weeks, last time I looked in June).
     
  6. I hope so!!!

    do you think it will have overheating issues if playing 1080p?

    cheers!

    No overheating issues yet (1080p or otherwise!), still crossing the fingers though...
