    I currently use an old PC for viewing DIVX's and limited web surfing.

    I am now upgrading most of my kit which includes new furniture that want accommodate my big beige box!

    What is the best option for me? Here is what I am looking for ...

    1. Something small
    2. Network access
    3. DIVX playback from network (or HD if available)
    4. MP3 playback from network (or HD if available)
    5. Web surfing (optional)
    6. Remote control rather than keyboard/mouse if poss

    (I don't need DVD playback, TV in, or anything fancy like that)

    Cheers in advance :)

    how much do you have to spend?

    I've just ordered one of these HUSH to use for downloading, Streaming media, normal PC stuff etc...

    Pricey, but beautiful looking, *absolutely* silent, and they dont use much power, 60W i think? So, you can leave them downloading 27/7 without worrying about the bills.. :rolleyes:

    I'm gonna be collecting a few of them I reckon... :D

    :oops: that's a typo - right?

    For £200 you could get a shuttle and use some bits from your current pc.
