Desktop PCs of 3 or more years ago were power hungry enough that most users shut them down while they were not in use. Today's low-power nettop platform has stunned the world with how small PCs can be if you can afford to sacrifice a little of today's performance standards. Today we take a look at the ASRock Core 100HT home theater PC that brings the best of both worlds by providing a nettop-sized PC with the performance of Intel's Core i processor line. Read on to find out if this tiny HTPC is right for you!
The ASRock Core 100HT HTPC offers a well rounded home theater experience for those who do not need or want a beast of a PC running 24/7. Many users run their HTPC non-stop and having low power consumption keeps money in the bank. The ASRock Core 100HT uses less power at idle than two 13W CFL energy efficient lightbulbs! As far as performance goes, the ASRock Core 100HT is a more robust system for playing HD content than most nettop platforms such as the Intel Atom platform or the AMD Fusion APU platform if you plan on running any tasks in the background like ripping DVDs or Blu-Rays or even re-encoding video content.
