To preface, I want to build a small, computing for my finacee. She's a light user, so the optimal system will be a low-power, small form factor system (I'm thinking HTPC size). Most importantly -- I would really like to find a very "sleek" case (perhaps something approaching the sleek factor of the mac mini? Would be willing even to spend a little more for the right look...
