Default Advice on a multimedia tablet?

I'm looking for a multimedia tablet for streaming media over a home network. Primarily it will be used for movies (HD content included) and web surfing, but I'd like to extend it to music if it can be done effectively. All movies/music are stored remotely on a NAS. I'd REALLY like to stay away from the iPad as I'm not interested in reformatting several thousand movies and TV shows for Apple to play nice. (Quite a bit of mkv content) My personal preference as it stands is a Windows device, but I'm not completely shut off to Android or other options.

Currently I'm thinking about an Archos 9. But I'm hoping to get some suggestions from people that have tablets used for similar purposes. I considered a laptop with a swivel tablet-top, but they're expensive, and I already have a nice laptop. Thoughts?
