My System Specs

Default

i have a full blown PC now that i want to retire... hense the question. I want to move to an "appliance" based solution on my next upgrade cycle for multiple reasons... some of which include:

- smaller device (I'd like to downsize my AV rack)
- lower power consumption
- fanless / noiseless
- low cost
- no maintenance

I make a living in IT and have no interest in tweaking/maintaining my entertainment products... i target to discontinue my HTPC completely sometime in the future and hand it down to the kids. on the surface the Apple TV looked like a very attractive playback device, but with no easy way of supporting .mkv files, i will end up overlooking this device.
