G-Box Sigma Lowest Cost HTPC Ever
Matricom 32GB/SSD 1.6 Ghz Dual-Core XBMC Gotham
A Linux HTPC is not something for beginners, rather it's more for someone that wants to have a Linux computer to mess with at a low price. For everyone else a Roku, or Apple TV would be much better options. If you are someone that likes to tinker and want something more powerful that can do much more than a typical streamer, the G-Box Sigma is an excellent choice.
Matricom's G-Box Sigma is a fully featured computer that can run Windows 8, and with XBMC can act as a media center for your videos and music collection. Hook it up to a monitor or television, attach a keyboard or wireless entertainment keyboard with touchpad like the Hausbell Mini H7 and you have a powerful computer in a small powerful package.
