This looks pretty tempting. Seems like a couple of DIMMs and a small SSD, and you're off and running for under $200 (assuming you have a spare Win7 license). Even though I don't need another HTPC I'm seriously thinking of snagging one of these. Unless there is some sort of gotcha with the AMD E-350D APU and/or A45 FCH chipset that would make it unsuitable for HTPC use?

(Edit - aware of some reported issues back in 2011, particularly with interlaced content, but it seems like that would not be a problem with current drivers...)

Does this thing run at anything better than the 1.6 GHz that my E-350 runs at? My system has a hard time with big mkv's.

Not sure... didn't end up pulling the trigger. Decided to continue holding out for a Ceton echo so I can have a 1-box extender solution at the one TV I haven't yet "served" properly... as opposed to HTPC for blu-ray rips/Xbox 360 for copy-protected recorded TV.
