    A Windows notebook/laptop with DVI output, digital audio out and a quiet fan (or preferably none at all).

    As far as I can see nobody is doing anything like this at the moment. The Apple Powerbooks come close - but unfortunately I need Windows. :(

    does it have to be a laptop?
    i'm assuming you want to use the computer as a htpc say when you're not working (or similar) as otherwise using a laptop for a htpc seems a bit non sensical.

    even if a laptop like that does exist i'd bet itd be cheaper to knock together an htpc out of spare parts/second hand stuff and get the cheapest laptop that you could for your needs - particularly if you're not that bothered about wmvhd..

    Compactness and portability were the main attractions of the laptop.

    If that's not possible then I guess I'll have to settle for as compact and lightweight a desktop as possible - preferrably without a fan.

    Any recommendations?
