    I've already got a pretty small htpc built up from a couple years ago (E5200 w/ nvidia 9300 on an ITX board). Obviously it's old and pretty underpowered but it plays all my 1080p content without issue.

    I need a 2nd one now and I'm debating between building it again or getting a prebuilt one, specifically an Asus Eeebox. I think they're pretty slick and could potentially serve my purpose.

    What do you guys think? Is a Cedar Mill Atom + 610M good enough to handle full bluray playback? How does it compare to an old Wolfdale+9300? Of course I can put together an Ivy Bridge ITX build, but I think it would be wasted on this project.

    I haven't seen much recent discussion of the Eeebox pcs or anything like it on the forums, so I wanted to throw it out there and see what everyone thinks.
