Small, quiet and powerful enough to easily drive an hdtv card. It takes a bog-standard SATA disk drive for recording/storing HDTV. The Intel embedded chipsets are good-enough. Apparently this thing has the fancier audio chipset too.

Only thing to note is since it is a small form factor PC, the PCI and PCI Express slots accept only the compact-size cards with compact face plates. This isn't a big deal as everything is getting smaller anyway. You have two choices depending on how you wish to handle this.

1. Buy the 2x PCI riser card kit or the 1X PCI Express riser card kit. This will cover all of the PCI Express slots on the main board. Maybe USD $40 with shipping.
2. Buy a compact hdtv tuner card, or external tuner device.

Highly recommended box!!!
