Pegatron HTPC

Home Theater PC’s offer a great, cheap way to watch streaming content on your HDTV, and Pegatron is offering a slick new option with their as yet-unnamed small HPTC. It has a slick bamboo finish, HDMI output, Ethernet, as well as microphone and speaker inputs. With NVIDI’s Tegra 2 chip, the box can decode 1080p and Flash video smoothly, and runs either Android or Windows CE.

While no price or release date has been announced, the aim for the box is affordability, so I don’t expect to be more than $200.
