If your geek tendencies have ever desired to shoehorn a computer into your home theater, now's the time to give in.

Acer introduced the Aspire X1200 this morning, which for $450 includes on-board NVIDIA GeForce 8200 graphics, an AMD Athlon (remember those?) X2 2850e processor and, thankfully, a HDMI port. The company expects full 7.1-channel audio support as well as enough oomph under the hood to handle H.264, VC1, and MPEG2 and output 1080P.

The entire package comes in a rack-ready 10.6 x 4.0 x 14.4-inch enclosure. Though it starts in the $400s with a 320GB SATA II drive, prices extend to $699 based on your needs -- in this case, a 22-inch display.
