    what is a media center pc?

    i read that they are used to record tv on the hard drive - and that they have tv tuners built in - like a sky + box??

    can you watch tv without booting up windows?

    does anyone have one - and are they any good?

    can anyone list the differences between a media center and a standard pc

    Cheers

    This month's PC Pro comic .. er, magazine ;) .. has a comparative revie of several such machines, may be a useful read if you're interested in buying one rather than building.
