Okoro Core i7 HTPCs
Okoro Media Systems today signaled itself as one of the first home theater PC builders to use Intel's Core i7 platform for its systems. The TH550 as well as the GX100 and GX300 all use the new quad-core processors combined with faster video cards to produce systems that can both share content across multiple zones, including HD, and also play games on the same level as larger desktop PCs. Every model has dual analog and dual QAM digital tuners that let it pick up as many as four separate wired TV feeds; a separate over-the-air TV tuner catches free broadcasts.

Okoro Media Systems on Thursday announced it will soon be shipping the more affordably priced OMS-LX100 Digital Entertainment System. Part of the company's low-profile home theater PC range, the OMS-LX100 features a single CableCARD tuner and a 2.2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor along with NVIDIA's GeForce 9300 video card. The system also includes 4GB of RAM and a 7,200RPM SATA hard drive preloaded with Windows Vista Home Premium that has a 500GB capacity. The media center PC supports 7.1-channel high-definition audio via an HDMI port, and has a dual-layer DVD burner.
