I'm trying to determine which way to go in terms of processor.
I'm planning on moving from a fanless shuttle xt35 to a miniITX build using this case:
Ideally I'd love to remain fanless but i'm not sure its an option. What I'd like to know is what the best architecture for me to use is?
I want a machine that can smoothly playback 3D ISO Bluray files, bitstream audio to my AVR and handle heavy skins in XBMC or other front ends, all while consuming the least power.
Someone recommended some AMD APU ones, I hear Celeron is faster and Atom is too slow (I use atom now and it is) i5 is too power hungry... Does anyone have any insight as too which way I should lean towards?
