Is anyone using a Laptop for a HTPC? Surely they're fast and high spec enough these days. Even the graphics cards in them are much improved nowadays. Also, do they make laptop versions of tuner or capture cards 'cause if a laptop can do a decent job then I might opt for one instead of another desktop. I can make a better case for a laptop with the powers that be. "Use it anywhere in the house love, surf while sunbathing love, use it all the......oops......use it sometimes in the HT room" It would also be whisper quiet. So go on, tell me why its not feasible. It musn't be or else everyone would be using them. Maybe its because you couldn't play newer games at full detail on the big screen, 'cause if thats the all then no problem. The desktop can be brought in for 'Special Occasions'!!
