Bang & Olufsen’s BeoMedia 1 Media Center
Bang & Olufsen’s BeoMedia 1 Media Center – Media PCs – mediapcs.engadget.com: From Engadget: “Bang & Olufsen have just announced their WinXP Media Center Edition BeoMedia 1. B&O; claims their solution which features a custom front-end differs from other Media Center offerings by “selecting the functionality most relevant to the user, and making it easy to use.” The built-in 160GB disk hosts your digital photos, video clips, digital music, for playback through your B&O; (and non-B&O; presumably) home entertainment system. Oddly, but not for B&O;, they don’t list a single supported format in their press release.”
Although you have to admire the Bang & Olufsen design, I’ve never been able to figure out who pays all that money for overpriced electronics.
