WOW got me! I am using a $1500 laptop as my HTPC now. Since we are talking $99 computers, unicorns and using the Logitech MX AIR to successfully control WMC on 7 also come to mind tongue.gif
AND how come I am the only one here with gear in my sig?

Not bad... although not as good a deal as the £67 Thinkpad X series I just bought (http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/ibm-lenovo-thinkpad-x61-7674-12-notebook-grade-b-sch-trade-66-79-2gb-ram-80gb-hdd-1503113).. At this price, this makes the Raspberry Pi look like a very poor deal ;-)
