Myka ION a home theater PC for the living room
Myka has moved on from producing media hubs by releasing its Myka ION nettop as a full-fledged home theater PC. As the name implies, the PC packs a 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor and 2GB of RAM, along with an NVIDIA Ion graphics platform to supply HD (non-Flash) video. It runs on Ubuntu Linux and includes Boxee and XBMC media center software as well as support for standard-definition Adobe Flash and Hulu's online streaming service.
Video outputs include VGA, DVI and HDMI, while audio connections include optical, digital coaxial and analog outputs. Options include Wi-Fi and a Blu-ray drive. The Myka ION starts at $379 without Wi-Fi or a Blu-ray drive but with a 160GB hard drive. A fully optioned model costs $769. [via CrunchGear]
