    I have a Samsung Smart TV. Will be getting and setting up an HP Microserver with WHS 2011 so the htpc doesn't need a particularly large HDD as it will be streaming from the server over cat5e.

    Form factor is a significant issue and I have a max budget of £400.

    I've built my own pcs before so doing a self-build isn't a worry, however small and inexpensive cases that are also stylish don't seem to be an option, hence looking at some of the pre-built systems.

    So far I've narrowed it down to 2 options

    Acer Revo RL100 for £300
    Zotac Zbox 3d Blue Ray (price seems a little harder to pin down but i'm suspecting it will be above the budget).

    Any other suggestions or critiques of the above would be great.

    So what do you want the HTPC to do: just deliver pre-recorded media to the tv?

    Web Browsing, streaming video (flash/divx) from online, delivering stored media to the pc and having a 3d blu-ray player so I don't need to get a separate one in the future. No gaming needed on it.
