Thanks you for your repl wedge27,
I would hope to run Linux Ubuntu System if not then Win7 (i already have). I do not require a lot of storage in the system. I was perhaps thinking 60g hard drive or under. Mostly for the OS and music storage. I would like it to take external storage (usb drive) to load up movies and watch on TV which would connect via hdmi to TV. I would like it to be wifi to add to my home computers and be able to stream movies as well. 1080p would be good.
I would be hoping for min of 2x usb slots or if 4 usb then i could use a usb wifi network adapter if it was easier to do than add wifi by other means. One would be a receiver for my wireless touchpad/ keyboard. Not looking for anything to hi-tech but as small a case as possible to fit under tv. Does not need to have audio out or indeed in. I already have a speaker system for my tv wich can out the audio from the HDMI in.
Looking around i can see a few mini atx cases. Most have a front optical drive slot for cd/dvd. I do not need really need this either. I am a little stuck on motherboards at the moment. I will repost with some things i have seen.
Hope this gives a good idea and you can comment further.
