I’m no media center fanatic, but this low profile (2.7-inches) unit from Okoro Media System struck a cord with the aesthetics snob in me. The OMS-SX100 is equipped with an AMD dual core Athlon X2 processor, is energy ‘green’ and comes standard with a 500GB hard drive, DVD burner, 2GB of RAM, HMDI, DVI and VGA output and runs Windows Vista Home Premium. It rocks the latest audio decoding, and for a little extra cash you can double the RAM, toss in a Blu-ray drive, and double the hard drive capacity. Looks like you can add SageTV or Snapstream during the config process, and they’re said to be launching a CableCard ready version in the near future. Choose between black and white.

The OMS-SX100 is available here starting at $1,695 and ships November 6th.
