Intel shows off its Viiv partners

Chris Davies - Jan 12, 2007

Lacking a little in detail it may be (i.e. aside from names, there’s none!), but Krunker’s photo essay on the variety of compact media PCs using Intel’s greatly-vaunted (by them, at least) Viiv technology is an interesting indication of just what manufacturers will be pushing us to slot under our TVs this coming year. 

Generally it’s all quite predictable, although still pleasant enough for the lounge: slim boxes, some with built-in optical drives, either horizontal or vertical in orientation.  There are a couple of notable exceptions, with Best Logic’s “football helmet PC” being a rather wretched example, and Onkyo’s mini-HiFi style PC being a far nicer one.
