Hardware, Embedded Systems Geeks.com was so kind to send me the Dell w1700, a 17" widescreen multi-purpose monitor (by lack of a better term). It can serve as a television and a computer monitor at the same time, and the amount of connection possibilities is just scary. Read on for a review.

"...boot time and can crash..."

You're missing out on a better experience if you let such bogus arguments stop you. Boot time is a non-issue for servers, which are always on. Crashing is a defect in a specific implementation, not the general class, and may be seen in components as well as computers.

My MythTV system never crashes. But I have a DVD player which locks up on some discs, and the power cord must be unplugged - the front panel 'power' switch is logic level and is ignored when the player locks up.

I get more use and enjoyment out of my entertainment system since I added a computer. Perhaps MythTV or Windows MCE is not for you, but please attribute the faults to the specific application, not to the gerneral concept.
