HP relaunches CableCARD media PC, redubs it m8100y

Darren Murph

Well, would you check this out. Those "issues" that HP was apparently having with its Digital Tuner-equipped m8010y have finally been remedied... in the form of an entirely new machine. Strange as it may be to believe, searching for an m8010y or d4890y at HP's webshop yields information about two recently decommissioned products rather than giving you access to buy one of your own, and users searching for a CableCARD-ready media PC will instead be forced by buy an m8100y. Interestingly, the base CPU is now a 2.33GHz Core 2 Duo E6560 and the included graphics card is the 256MB NVIDIA GeForce 8400GS, and while you'd certainly benefit from a few select upgrades, mettlesome souls can snag the newest HP to (hopefully) play nice with ATI's Digital Cable tuner for as low as $1,149.99.
