If their last PC was the Hummer of the Media Center world, this one's undoubtedly the Beetle. Living up to its namesake, the new Stealth Media Center measures a scant 3.6-inches high yet packs enough media muscle to merit a spot next to your plasma. Design-wise, it's one of the better looking MCE PCs out there and it's no slouch when it comes to performance either. Click through for a run down of its insides.


The Stealth comes in 4 different configurations (starts at $4,399). Each model is powered by a dual-core AMD processor and comes with a minimum of 1GB of RAM, dual TV tuners (1 HD and 1 SD), and enough space to accommodate a 1.5TB SATA drive. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth aren't built-in, which is a sin considering the starting price, but to make up for it you get enough ports for pretty much everything that sits in your living room, and it's even HDCP-compliant. The pricing is too high for this blogger's wallet, but any MCE fans out there with cash to invest can't go wrong.
