Poorly done article. I saw many posts in the comments section (for Slashdot, but also in the article) saying people should come to AVS Forum to learn how to make a good HTPC, not simply a computer centered around the 8500DV.
I didn't think much of this article when they first wrote it way back last year. That was before I discovered the AVS Forums. Now that I've been here for a few months, it merely makes the article seem that less "informed"
Anyway, the perfect HTPC would depend on the person who wants it.
