Well I'll let you know how the M350 turns out as I should be getting it monday. Why do you need an IR receiver, are you trying to use a regular remote? If you have a smart phone and use xbmc you can use it as a remote instead.

I am planning to use XBMC, though, while it is convienient for me to iPhone, but I not always at home and wife and kids do want to use HTPC somehow.
I have bluetooth dongle and lenovo minikeyboard with trackball. Unfortunately bluetooth devices are not capable of starting PC, whereas IR ones can and bluetooth remotes are way more expensive than IR ones.

I am looking forward to your review of M350. Thanks.

PS: got really neat all aluminum 2-post server rack, installed my outlets and switch, placed all other network gear on shelves. Soon I'll install OTA antenna and put stardust tuner to send TV signal over the network.

Still not sure if I will be going Sandybridge, the new Celeron is quite a little performer with low power usage, or FM1 but that's the case for my next build.
