A report on hardware.info confirms what many of us already know - the end is near for those high-end, super-cool DVD players. Indeed, why buying a $2000 high-end DVD player (and now, with HD sparkling flavor crystals) when you can buy a pretty good media center PC, plus a high-end graphics card?

That said, those high-end devices do look nice, isn't it? I can barely wait for a media center PC which will look the same way. Right now, all these MC PCs look too big and bulky. They should all look like Cerise Mini, of course, with a blazing fast Merom chip inside, and inaudible fans.
