And to go on from there:

There is a proper setting for brightness on a projector. That setting is at the point where pixels of the darkest black (i.e., luminosity level 0) are projecting at the...

I agree it does look like a neat little HTPC. But read around a bit and you'll find that it has lots of problems with heat and fan noise. At least the other Shuttle systems (i.e., non Athlon) do....
