I'm building a home cinema and the idea of also having a desktop PC hooked up to it is greatly appealling. The market is a minefield and I'm clueless.
I need it for rapid, hassle-free web browsing, with all the range of web features a normal PC enjoys, such as being able to use a wireless, illuminated keyboard, saving images to the hard drive (how does one move the cursor on a desktop PC? Without a mouse, without a solid surface to rest it on? I'd need a keyboard with one of them roller ball things right?).
I need it to be:
- Small, ideally not more than eight inches in any direction.
- Quiet and cool: no jet turbine cooling fans please.
- Have a HDMI 1.4 in and out; the PC will be an integral part of the overall system hooked up to my receiver and through there to my display.
- Available in Italy.
Budget isn't an excessive concern; I'm willing to spend a little more to get a quality product. It'd be nice to be able to play games on it but of course then I start getting into "build it youself" territory, and I'm utterly clueless at any of that. I don't understand half the acronyms involved, GPU, CPU, RAM, it's all alphabet soup to me lol
If I could get one that I can play games on (I'd have to overhaul it every six month or so right?), I'd like to play with a controller...
