The HP Media Center PCs are pretty nice for factory made units.

What are you talking about? This is the best system I've ever owned. CNet rated it at 9.3 which is the highest ever to be given on a Desktop PC. It even beat out AlienWare and Dell's XPS. I know not everyone has it for a cookie cutter pre-built computer system but I love it. I don't care what people say about prebuilt systems because this HP blackbird02 case is freaking Crazy, Sexy, Cool!!!! It's blazing fast and I love it for gaming and Blu-ray/HD-DVD Movies!

Yes, I'm sure but this owns even that. I don't want a TV Tuner in my computer. I want to play game with Windows Vista x64 in DirectX 10 at 2560x1600 along with playing Blu-Ray/HD-DVD Movies. I have a TV and PS3 for all those other needs mate.

I was just saying that HP has made concerted efforts to provide top notch media capable PCs. You don't necessarily need a tuner for it to be considered a media PC, imo, but you do need top notch performance. Add a tuner and the media PC becomes a HTPC is how I look at it.

I don't know any other company that is in the same league with prebuilt media PCs.

Yes, you're exactly right! HP is by far the best in that area.
