I purchased a ready builit Dell i 15 last year for the purpose of recording over the air TV. Unfortunately, I got an ugly desktop that is RED. Now I wish I had done what is necessary to get a small low profile HTPC that would not be unsightly. I use Home Run as Tuner for it, and installed a second 2 TB hard drive.
Is it possible to get a horizontal case that I can transpose all the parts into from the desktop (remember two hard drives too) or does having that type of setup call for smaller components to get it into a smaller form factor. Even a larger horizontal case (like the old VCR cases) would be an improvement over what I have now. Any recommendations? that might work?
