Now instead of just using Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 to watch the latest movie trailers and celebrity porn, you can record actual TV broadcasts directly to your notebook's hard drive. Using MCE's scheduling software, you can time-shift live content anywhere you go (well, at least as far as your coax cable will stretch) or watch recorded programs, untethered, at your leisure. Also, hardware-based MPEG-2 encoding ensures that recording your Gilmore Girls fix will go easy on your lappy's processor.
