Record TV and get your game on, too!
One of the reasons traditional PCs will be around for a long while to come is because they're capable of doing so many different things, and doing them well. Just take a look at CyberPowerPC's new Zeus HTPC line, a "sleek new series of Windows-based home theater PCs that can double as your primary desktop." According to CyberPowerPC, you can game, record television, watch Blu-rays, and more all from a thin micro-ATX chassis that fits neatly into your AV rack.
There are a couple of starting configurations to choose from. The first is the Zeus TV Pro A100 powered by an AMD A8 6400K quad-core processor. It also has 8GB of RAM, 1TB hard drive (7200 RPM), slot-loaing DVD burner, 802.11n Wi-Fi, media center remote, and Logitech K400 wireless keyboard with built in touchpad. It starts at $699, and for an additional $97, you can upgrade to a Radeon HD 7750 graphics card.
The other starting configuration is the Zeus TV Pro i100 powered by an Intel Core i5 4430 quad-core processor. The specs are similar to the AMD setup, though it comes standard with a 2TB HDD instead of 1TB. Starting price is $895, and like the other setup, several of the components are upgradeable.
Either way, the system measures just 17.12 inches (L) by 15.35 inches (W) by 2.75 inches (H). The Zeus HTPC line is available to configure and order now.
