It isn't a PC. The popcorn hour is a complete system. It doesn't require anything to run besides itself. No cpu, no HDD, no psu. It is all inclusive. You can install an HDD but it doesn't require one.

Okay, so the Popcorn Hour a-110 looks amazing... but its available almost nowhere. Does anyone know where I can get it so i can tell me friend? hehe.

PS: The DivX Connected server still doesnt support DivX7 yet, so for MKV it looks like the popcorn is a winner... if it can be found.

EDIT:
A Popcorn hour wannabe?

i have a popcorn hour my self (A-100) and find it is one of the better streaming boxes available. Since the C-200 got released i think the A-110 has come down in price. As far as streaming content other than ps3 media server the only other ones i have tried are.

Tversity
Upnp Streaming server in freenas

The C-200 is just too expensive IMO. You can build a very capable HTPC for that price w/ all the capabilities of the C-200 plus more.
