Rock Solid HTPC

A Listmania! list by Brian L (Austin, TX)
The list author says: "Here's what you need to build a rock solid HTPC based on XBMC. The SSD makes it quick to boot and snappy to use. It does have a small laptop fan inside, but it is near-silent."
ZOTAC ZBOX Intel Atom D525 1.8 GHz Dual Core Barebone Mini-PC ZBOX-ID41-U
1.  ZOTAC ZBOX Intel Atom D525 1.8 GHz Dual Core Barebone Mini-PC ZBOX-ID41-U by Zotac
The list author says:
  "You might be tempted to go with the newer ID80, but beware that you'll need to manually upgrade the BIOS to get sleep mode working properly, and even then it runs very hot.  This tried-and-true box runs cool and decodes 1080p just fine."
