HTPC – mac disappoints, can Asus fill a gap?

Since I got my flat screen telly I’ve been looking for a small form PC/Mac to plug into to it for iPlayer and other media duties.

I was waiting a long time for an update to the Mac Mini and when it came, well, it’s a good little machine but waaaaay too expensive. In these troubled times the expense is just too much to justify, especially if you add a Media server on top.

However, as a Mac devotee stepping away from the platform felt like the wrong idea.

Until this little combination cropped up.

Asus Eee Box 206 + HP Mediasmart = multiplatform media sharing and fun.

So, Mac latops, Asus into the telly, HP mediasmart sharing files between the two. Seems sensible.

Yes, there are probably easier ways to do this and the HP bit is not cheap, but there you go. I don’t have Linux badges.

Only problem is the Asus is reported as being available now, but I can’t find one for love nor money. The HP is supposed to be here in March but no confirmed release date.

A little more waiting I feel.
