Navio 902T2: high-end, game-oriented Media Center PC

Navio 902T2

The ideal home theater PC for many users would both blend into the collection of electronics that accompanies the TV as well as offer genuine performance for games and other high-demand software. Navio has recently given word about what could be one of the better balances struck between subtlety and high-end computer hardware. Its new 902T2 living room PC is undoubtedly ready for both tasks. An integrated HDTV tuner lets it accept the HD feeds you would expect from such a system, while a 7-inch touchscreen should let you manage stored media without interrupting shows. Accordingly, a full 1TB of storage and 2GB of RAM should prevent it from running out of cache or storage space in the near future. 3D performance is clearly above average courtesy of a GeForce 7900 GTX and the available room for a second video card (SLI is the implied option, but not stated). Perhaps the only disappointments are the choice of processor and the cost: a dual-core Pentium 4 in mid-2006 is merely adequate, and at $4995 buyers will likely need to make Navio's system their only computer.
