Piixl EdgeCenter 3770 world's smallest, most powerful HTPC?

By on
Piixl has developed a new breed of high-powered, "invisible" home theater computers. The 30mm-thick EdgeCenter 3770 can be mounted directly to the rear VESA mounting interface of 37 to 70-inch flat panel televisions, putting it out of direct sight.

While system performance would typical suffer at the hands of such a compact form factor, the EdgeCenter 3770 is actually very well equipped. Processors start at an Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 and scale all the way up to Core i7 and even dual-chip Xeon solutions.

Other components are equally as scalable. High-end options include 24GB of DDR3 1333MHz RAM, a 1GB Radeon HD 5850, a 2TB HDD, a Blu-ray burner, a dual DVB-T TV tuner, an assortment of Logitech peripherals and Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.

Naturally, squeezing all of this into a tiny package comes at a hefty premium. The cheapest EdgeCenter 3770 configuration available starts at about 2,490 (about $4,050) and the fully decked-out system costs 8,347 (about $13,577).
