Relative unknown HABEY has recently released an HTPC powered by an Atom N270 that’s capable of handling 1080p content (or so they claim).
The diminutive box, also named the BIS-6550HD, is supposed to be the most energy-efficient HTPC available, and while a fairly weak processor powers it, it has a powerful hardware decoder that allows it such powerful throughput. It also packs up to 2GB of RAM on a single DIMM, has wireless / HDTV tuner options, plenty of video output options, a multi-card reader, gigabit Ethernet and four USB 2 ports.
No pricing or availability information is available yet.
