to mce...or not to mce?

the diva's blog reminded me of something today, and that is...

my next computer will be running windows xp media center edition 2005.

why, you ask?

because i have a replaytv,and it kicks major butt. as such, pvr functions are very big around our house.

if the replay misses a recording (like, during extended power or cable service outages) folks in my house are very unhappy. so, having an mce simply as a backup if the replay goes up in smoke is reason enough for me.

still, the new machine has to have a dual-core processor.

i'm vacillating between either an hp and a winbook unit.

i'd already have bought the winbook (the 30" lcd/tv is very compelling), except it has a pentium 4, not a pentium d.

btw: i suppose i'll pick one of these up too when it arrives.
