Hot on the heels of Okoro Media Systems' LX100
, the company is offering yet another low(er)-end option with slightly less powerful innards, but housed in a very sexy, slim case. The OMS-SX100 is the latest addition to the company's wide array of HTPC offerings, and sports a sleek, black enclosure that should fit in nicely with your other AV devices (except maybe that impending Nintendo Wii
). It comes packed with a 1.67GHz Intel Core Due T2300 Yonah CPU, 1GB of DDR2 RAM, integrated Intel 950 graphics, 250GB SATA drive, 16x dual-layer DVD burner, 8-channel audio, gigabit Ethernet, USB OTA HDTV tuner, and a vanilla (read: unspecified) internal TV tuner -- you'll also find a plethora of ports, including VGA, HDCP-friendly HDMI, S-Video, composite, FireWire, optical audio, and USB 2.0. Okoro
also gives you the option of Windows Media Center 2005 or a customized SageTV setup with Windows XP Home / Professional, as well as tossing in a wireless "mini-keyboard" and an IR / RF remote. Touting specs like that, you knew this bad boy would get that (still) mysterious Intel VIIV
seal of approval, and with a pricetag showing just $1,350, this media PC shouldn't put too
much strain on the bank account.
