According to its creator, Christoffer Nøkleby, the Merium Home Theater PC has a "sky high wife approval factor." According to my wife, any home theater PC should be hidden away in another room, although "the zebra cover could be cute. Hidden under the table." The 10.4 x 9.2 x 3.6 inch Merium runs Windows Home Premium, comes loaded with ports and cables, and has interchangeable plates for a whopping $1,561, which is the premium you pay normally for Scandinavian design (probably manufactured in China). Full gallery and specs after the jump.
