    I have been using a couple of Zotac ZBox mini PC's for providing the MP interface to the TV in the bedroom and the kitchen. I have an SSD fitted into both, and they have worked very well since I installed them. Admittedly, they are not the fastest of PC's, but they do play full HD well - they could just react a bit quicker. They use an Intel Atom processor and nVidia ION GPU.

    The unit in the kitchen is mounted behind the TV, and then one in the bedroom is just sat on top of a small set of drawers. I'm sure there must be something faster out there, that can perform with the same speed as the PC in the living room, which has a much quicker GUI reaction.

    Any ideas.... I would like to use the same SSD's, but I would have thought the RAM would be outdated.

    Thanks in advance.
