A little bit of free consultancy for you all: if you’re going to call your product “Clever”, you better make damn sure it lives up to the name. Therein lies the challenge for UK-based CyberSelect, who have seen fit to name their latest Media Centre PC the Clever 3000. First impressions are okay; it’s a big box, for sure, but a relatively handsome one at that, and it wouldn’t look out of place in a rack of home AV equipment. But do the guts of it live up to the name?
Well, you can’t argue with the storage. 2TB lurks in there, as a 1,500GB RAID array, snuggling up to 2GB of RAM, dual hybrid tuners (or three digital tuners, your choice) and an Intel Core2 Duo processor.
