It had the old Core2Duo (I think 2GHz), 4GB RAM, Windows 7 and the Intel 4500MHD graphics. I used it since it had HDMI.
It was my first good 1080p streamer. Now I did have to kick the kid off the Xbox to keep it from the usual pause as the buffers filled but later with the new 20+ Megabit internet service I rarely see a pause.
What should I be looking for if I want to steam movies from a laptop and watch them on a big TV? I hooked up my girl's laptop to my samsung but the movies pause often then stop - sometimes they play all the way through - wondering if that last mention is my ISP - YET- back to the original questions .... Thanks
