It’s been a while since we’ve seen a low-profile HTPC announcement. It seems all we’ve been getting recently is super high-end monster size boxes that costs as much as a decent used car (I’m not going to name names). Anyway, Okoro Media Systems has informed us that they’re releasing a slim, low energy consuming HTPC running Windows Home Premium. The OMS-SX100 (starting at $1,695) comes equipped with all the goodies a discerning HTPC enthusiast on a budget is looking for: HDMI, 7.1 Dolby TrueHD audio, DVD player (optional Blu-ray drive available), 500GB of storage (upgradeable to 1TB), 2GB of RAM (upgradeable to 4GB), and more. The press release also mentions that CableCARD tuner options are coming soon and a SAGE TV HD PVR model is in the works (nice).

    *Starting* at $1,695? +$475 to add the Blu-Ray capability (that does include and extra 2 GB of RAM)? I can see why this is for the high end market, it’s ludicrously overpriced for what you get, ergo *perfect* for that segment LOL.

    Why are all these things so expensive? It can’t have anything to do with size/form factor. My HP dv9938 has pretty much all these features, and the DV7 series can be had about the same for about $1200 – and these MCE’s don’t need the keyboard, touchpad, webcam, 17″ LCD, battery, etc.

    The guy who comes up with a case that will accept something like the guts from a DV5/DV7 series HP after the screen or battery is toast, will be a genius ;)
