Looking to get one of those micro form factor PCs to use as a lightweight Home Theater PC. Most likely will have Xbox Media Center installed on it streaming off my desktop computer which is networked into the router. No gaming will be used for this at all.
I currently have one of those WDTV Live+ boxes which is great, but I've found that every once in a while I'll come across a file that won't work so well, plus I've always wanted to delve into XBMC.
Is there anything 'new' or 'upcoming' that can compete with the Nvidia Ion2 platform?
I was looking at the Zotac Zbox Nano and it seems to be a pretty good contender.
With my credit card rewards I can essentially get enough money in amazon gift cards to purchase the whole thing.
The other option was using Amazon gift cards and pitching in a little extra and picking up the entry level Mac Mini. I'm not sure if it would be overkill though.
What do you guys think? Pull the trigger on an ION2 platform or wait for something better?
