Dell XPS 18stars
This 18-inch tablet doubles as a decent all-in-one, but you'll pay a premium for the flexibility....
Built by a local manufacturer, the AVR-500 is the epitome of a fully featured HTPC box; if there's a way you prefer to digest your media, chances are that this box can handle it. Obviously, you'll pay a premium for the privilege, but when compared against the combined price of a PVR, Blu-ray player and media server, it's actually outstanding value.
This is a full-sized HTPC, contained within a sexy SilverStone case that looks very much like a high-end amplifier. At the heart of this box is Intel's excellent, new quad-core i5 3550 CPU. Running at a maximum frequency of 3.7GHz, it's not just the CPU's raw MHz that helps this box obliterate our encoding benchmarks. The processor also includes Intel's new HD Graphics 2500, a speedy integrated graphics chip that is adept at encoding media files, thanks to Intel's Quick Sync technology.
