  2. Much lower spec pcs can handle 1080p videos. How much does this cost?
  3. 500bucks
  4. im wanting to get rid of my tv service and start downloading my shows that i want to watch.
  5. Some AMD Fusion chip. Like E-350, with 4GB DDR3, 500GB HDD for 300€.
    streams Blu-rays with no problem in Media player home cinema =D
  6. hmm what OP wants is essentially an HTPC connected to home tv while downloaded shows.

    you can achieve a better/cheaper/newer system with that 500 dollars which you'd spend on that HP crappo.

    consider this since you'd be downloading episodes/shows and movies through that machine;

    * a laptop/notebook is designed to run for 8 hours(considering its the office hours)
    multiply 8 hours by the working days
    multiply that for a month i.e; 30 days
    then try multiplying that number for 12 months and then you'll get a rough estimate of how long the laptop/notebook would be running for a year.

    a desktop however is designed to run 24/7 for a long time.

    they are built with sturdier material and can handle more stress - add an after market cooler and you have a quiet system.
