Making a wifi jukebox possible?

Well my idea was to have a wall mounted jukebox, with a touch screen that somehow is connected wirelessly to a PC. You use the jukebox like you normally would, but it would play the songs off my PC.

I know its seems a bit over the top but I think it would be an awesome conversation piece when I have people over......plus is anything ever over the top?

If anyone has seen a setup like this somewhere on the net lead me in the right direction.......b/c creating this from scratch is outside of my knowledge base.

Get a small PC like a Shuttle X100 ? (see us.shuttle.com) <-- assumes Win MCE can use touch screens

Or get a tablet PC?

Somebody here did just that a while ago and posted his results, it was really a fantastic job. I'll try to find the thread, but you know how bad the search sucks here...

Yeah, I searched every iteration of mp3, touchscreen, wall, wall-mount in both archived and current threads, and even searched my posts as I know I commented on his work and can't find it. Stupid crappy search. :|
