Keepin' with the funky fresh crowd, XtremeNotebooks is unleashing an all-in-one PC of its own, and while it may have some form of identity crisis coming from a laptop manufacturer, there's really no portable nature to this one. Nevertheless, the XN1 consists of a 22-inch WSXGA+ (1,680 x 1,050) LCD

DirecTV's booth seemed entirely too small for the amount of people and LCD TVs that were stuffed within, but we survived long enough to catch a few shots of the newfangled HR21 Pro DVR and to hear some not-so-encouraging words about the next rollout of HD offerings. You know the deal, hop on over h

There's just no way to followup a visit to Dish Network's booth than to hit up DirecTV directly afterwards, eh? Sadly, DirecTV's space was packed to the brim with individuals and an excessive amount of TVs, but we squeaked our way through the madness to get some shots of the company's HR21 Pro, whi

It looks like Intel has come to the realization that its product naming scheme has gotten a little out of hand and, as Ars Technica reports, it's now taking some measures to simplify things a bit. Apparently, Core 2 Quad, Core 2 Duo, and Core 2 Solo will all simply be known as \"Core 2\" starting on J

We're all a pretty critical lot when it comes to design, right? Well now's your chance to let your refined sense of taste show by voting on a selection of Mini PC designs. Intel's Core Processor Challenge has narrowed down a field of Viiv certified Core 2 Duo mini PCs to a shortlist of ten. Of thes

Every time you think the Viiv hype is dying down, Acer brings it back up, as just a few months after kicking out the \"world's first\" Viiv-certified LCD TV, the firm is now unveiling its Aspire L320 mini PC with -- you guessed it -- a shiny Viiv sticker adorning its case. Hot on the heels of its xSe

It looks like Asus' LED-backlit laptop and NVIDIA's three-way SLI will have to share the limelight with someone else at CeBIT, as Albatron is planning to showcase its wee Nano Abox V2.0 Mini-PC for literal computing on the go. While not quite a laptop per se, this miniature PC has a 6.1- x 3.4-inch

During last years CES, there was one question that was constantly asked, \"What is Viiv?\". After one year after it's announcement it doesn't seem like it has gained much traction in the marketplace.

Every few months it seems like some company comes out with some new hotsy-totsy media server setup. CES is no exception, with Russound and Lifeware announcing that they're putting their heads together to create the Viiv-compliant Media Console, complete with a keypad that can display metadata. We do

We're not exactly sure who'd spring for a completely wired version of a media streamer these days, especially with all the wireless renditions already out there, but I-O Data is officially launching its AVeL LinkPlayer2 for Intel Viiv anyway. Designed to stream audio and video over a wired Ethernet

After DirecTV's long-awaited HR20 HD DVR finally got its rightful announcements and actually hit users' hands, it wasn't too long before folks were plugging and praying in hopes of getting their new toy to play nice with that HTPC beside it.

While we're still firm believers that nobody is exactly certain what all this Viiv fuss is about, Acer has been labeled the first producer of a Viiv-certified LCD TV, which \"tests for compatibility of networked media devices with Intel Viiv technology-based PCs while sharing content over a home netw

Pcalchemey's (yeah, that's how they spell it) busted out a new line of configurable Media Center PCs, with four different models in its Alchemy Series available to tweak to your liking (and budget). Regardless of the model you choose, you'll get a Core 2 Duo processor (from a T5600 on the low end a

Intel and Omnicom Media Group look to be bringing a little more advertising into your life, announcing that they're collaborating on so-called \"10 foot\" advertising templates for on-demand content delivered to Viiv-based computers. Details are a bit sketchy, with an actual roll-out still months (or

These new DX420 boxes from Gateway aren't going to be breathing down Alienware's neck anytime soon, but the prices sure aren't bad for what you get, and the units shouldn't do too bad of a job as a media hub or for a bit of casual fragging. Starting at $599, the desktops all feature Core 2 Duo pr
