The Kapsel Media Center PC runs Windows Media Center Edition and is one of the first we've seen on the Intel Viiv platform which means this little orb packs in a dual-core processor (Yonah likely, though they don't specify), and Intel's Quick Resume Technology to power the media center on and off quickly. This tiny (10.6 x 9.1 x 3.0-inches) ceramic shelled PC can be positioned horizontally, vertically, or hung on the wall and throws down 7.1 surround and hi-def video playback. Expect this and other Viiv-centric media centers to ship first quarter 2006, price not yet disclosed.
