|I wonder if steve j. is riding 2 fences. a real HTPC all in one/MAC would need a bigger screen. picture buying a 40 to 50 inch all in one iMac with a wall or table mount screen. Make it thick enough to have lots of hdd's for storage . the 1tb western digital 2.5 inch come to mind. the new 27 inch would make a great on the wall tv for a kitchen but it is not quite big enough for a htpc screen. fence number 1.
the new mini's with 2 sdd's as a server and an offsite 8tb storage tank nas type . or 2 1tb hdd's with the usb dvd morphing into a fw800 bluray. is your second fence. it bluray dies he only had an addon. if downloading works the on wall 50 inch model imac could have room for 8tb easy. I think it is good thinking on apples part.
