The Zino HD (Inspiron 410) is a prime example of a compact entertainment PC meant to hook up to a HDTV or large-screen monitor.

If you are looking for the best bang for the buck, the highest end Zino 410 is pretty good for a decently powerful HTPC.

Dell's Inspiron Zino HD will fit seamlessly into your living room as a PC-based video source. Due to its uneven handling of even standard-def video, this $468 build isn't quite up to the task. Fortunately, Dell offers the right upgrades to get you to the hallowed ground of PC-based video content.

The budget PC category is littered with desktops that destroy the Zino HD in power and functionality, but Dell's mini taps their best features and compresses them into a frame the size of a power supply.

We needed a general purpose web surfing/email PC for the bedroom, so I went on Dell to buy the cheapest Inspiron -- one of the $250 ones, and then I saw the Zino HD. I had never even heard of it or seen it before. I saw that the specs are not too much worse than the specs of the cheapest...

If you're looking for a small form factor HTPC, this is it. I didn't want to mess around with building my own, so I went this route and I'm not disappointed. My config with the AMD X2 processor and discrete graphics card handle HD content just fine. Youtube 1080p video runs super...
