Hannibal Wicked HTPC

Hoping to create an alternative to the predominantly Windows-based home theater PC market without distancing itself from the mainstream, TVease is now carrying the Hannibal Wicked Edition in its range. This and the company's lower-end models ship with a fully configured installation of Ubuntu Linux with the open-source MythTV client installed, providing immediate access to the computer's DVR functions without added setup time. The system ships prepared for heavy-duty recording, TVease says, with a dual Hauppauge TV tuner. A BitTorrent client is preloaded along with access to live Internet services such as TV and weather.

The Wicked Edition of the Hannibal system is the company's flagship model, and adds a full 1TB of hard drive storage plus 802.11g WiFi to the system's 2.66GHz Celeron, 256MB of RAM, and GeForce 6200 video card. A 9-in-1 card reader, FireWire, USB, and an internal PCI slot give room for expansion. TVease ships the system for $1,099.
