HP MediaSmart LX195

HP tonight officially unwrapped a key update to its MediaSmart Servers in the LX195. The new version of the Windows Home Server is more compact and power-efficient than earlier models by dropping the existing AMD Sempron and Intel Celeron processors in favor of a 1.6GHz Atom and by removing interior expansion: a single 640GB drive provides storage, with 4 USB ports on the back allowing for more space through external disks. It's also the first MediaSmart Server to support Time Machine backups over the network on Mac OS X in addition to Windows Home Server backups.

It continues to serve as home network storage and includes hooks for streaming media, ranging from iTunes music streaming on all platforms to UPnP for sharing between Windows Media Center devices or consoles like the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. HP separates the LX195 from other Windows Home Servers by including tools to publish or view photos remotely as well as antivirus software to protect the MediaSmart Server itself from an attack.

Pricing and a release date aren't yet available, but the LX195 is unofficially believed ready by May for $400.
