Here's the way they design computers in Stockholm, Sweden: the Kapsel Media Center PC runs Windows Media Center with the help of an Intel Core Duo processor. It's uncommonly small, at just 10.6 inches tall and 4 inches thick, and is made of an unusual shiny ceramic material. Made specifically for home theater use, it uses the Intel Viiv platform and wakes up post haste with Intel Quick Resume Technology.
The company says it's nice and quiet, too, and includes a wireless keyboard and remote control. Sounds like it could be a worthy addition to your home theater. Designed by Swedish design firm Propeller, it looks kinda like a shiny mushroom. It was supposed to launch in March, and pricing wasn't announced.
