Measuring in at 8-inches square, the base configuration rings in at $229 and packs AMD's single-core Athlon 1.6GHz, 2GB RAM, 250GB HDD, a DVD burner, integrated Radeon HD 3200 video and Windows Vista.
Then again, with options for an Athlon X2 or Neo X2, up to 8GB or RAM, up to 1 TB of storage, an ATI Radeon HD 4330 512MB card, and upgrades to various different versions of Windows 7, the pricing does tend to creep up. That said, Dell has a pretty decent pre-configured option on its site: For $649 you'll get AMD's Athlon 2850e, 4GB of DDR2, ATI Radeon HD 4330, 500GB HDD, Windows 7 Home Premium, integrated 2.1 HD audio and a 20" Dell ST2010 widescreen HD monitor.

Faster CPU and gfx than an Atom, HDMI port (non on mac mini) and the same price to boot. This is the perfect HTPC.
