Kapsel Media Center ceramic PC with Intel Viiv

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.
