Why do you pick Zotac H67-ITX WiFi, when there are cheaper and good motherboard like ASUS P8H61-I ?

Based on the features, MSI E350IS-E45 is more comparable to ASUS P8H61-I than Zotac H67-ITX WiFi
For example, Zotac H67-ITX supports built-in wifi, display port and USB 3.0, while MSI E350IS-E45 lacks all these features.

Because he was making a reference to the article. The difference is still huge.

ASRock E350M1/USB3 + AMD E-350: $130

ASUS P8H61- Mini-ITX + Intel Core i3 2100T: $220

True, the choice in the mobo doesn't make sense if one wants to compare prices between systems, but even so, the brazos (apu + mobo) system is less than just the cost of the i3-2100T. If you add the mobo to the i3, it's still $100 more for just the mobo and CPU, and either will handle htpc tasks equally well (assuming that both of these platforms are geared toward htpc's). I won't pretend that the i3 isn't more powerful, but I guess it depends on how that power will be put to use, and whether it's worth it. There will be people on both sides of the camp, and I'm sure the i3 will get support from consumers. To be honest, I'd rather pay $100 more for a more powerful system. But I can see why others wouldn't.

Well The way I see it if you have the money to build an extra htpc you prolly can shell out an extra 100.
But my other question is what kind of graphics would you have to buy to make blue ray work without tearing?
post #25 of 118
What are we talking here in terms of raw performance against mainstream desktop CPUs? low end Care 2 or lower than that?

pretty much anything NVidia or AMD make - even their base-model GPUs support 23.976Hz without issue. It's just the Intel chips that don't do it.

E-350 is 130 or less with motherboard while i3 2100T is like 134 on Newegg not including the Motherboard. I suppose if you have money spend but seems to me two different markets.

This article is pretty much "Herp derp, lets compare oranges to apples!"

Wouldn't it make more sense to compare 32nm SB to 32nm AMD chips based on BD?
post #30 of 118
Well that's quite unfair
Netbookish platform vs mainstream?
No
