Ultra Low Power Computer for Media Server Tags: Prebuilt Media Server Computer Power Systems Last response: October 15, 2010 8:17 PM in Systems Share Anonymous September 28, 2010 11:05:36 PM Hello all, I am looking toward building or (or buying pre-configured) a very low power machine to act as an always on network media server. My current thought is toward an Atom based machine, so that I can leave PS3 Media Server up all the time and be able to copy music or movies or whatever to it whenever I like. What are people's experiences with using these low power computers for these purposes?
