Need recommendations on a HTPC.
Right now I have these devices.
Android Tablet (HP Touchpad)
Smartphone (Galaxy Note)
Asus G50vt Laptop (Check Sig)
Toshiba 40" HDTV 240hz
Right now I'm using my Laptop connected to my HDTV to watch netflix, but I don't like that first because the laptop gets very hot, it's always plugged and sometimes it stays on for days.
I'm thinking of getting rid of 2 or 3 devices.
The Tablet ---> Not really using that much.
My Laptop ---> Get an ultrabook down the line
Wii ---> Aside from the latest Zelda, no more games.
The HTPC needs to have this qualities:
Uses will be for.
Playing music and videos from own hdd.
Browsing. I check the forums from my bed on my HDTV.
Budget is 600 tops.
Take in consideration I'm not gaming on my PC anymore.
So not really a fan of specs, just need it enough for 1080p video and to handle a lot of chrome tabs.
I've been actually thinking of the Mac Mini.
Looks great, has a full OS. Could install Windows if needed.
I already have a bluetooth mouse and keyboard.
Not sure I want to build a rig on my own, it would need to be quiet and really small.
I don't want a tower on top of my drawer.
Haven't really seen many htpc, so please recommend alternatives.
