Tranquil Media MCE PCTranquil PC (via have this cool looking Media Center PC available in the UK.  It's very small and so has some limitations but the design of it is great.  It's using a VIA mini-itx platform so it's not capable of playing HD WMV and only supports one tuner, but for a basic Media Center PC it looks pretty good.  The specs are:

  • Motherboard/CPU: VIA M2 1.2GHz with MPEG2 acceleration, 10/100Mbps LAN, 6ch Audio, SPDIF out, USB2.0, Firewire
  • Video: nVidia FX5200 128MB with composite and s-video out
  • Hard drive: 160GB
  • Optical drive: combo DVD/CD-RW

All in all a pretty impressive little system and right now are running a competition to win one (I'm not sure, but it's probably UK only).
