    Thermaltake today announced the latest addition to their popular Small Form Factor chassis, LANBOX HT. Based on the proven structural design of LANBOX Series chassis, LANBOX HT exhibits a more contemporary and sophisticated aluminum front bezel design that can be easily integrated into today’s home theater environment.

    To enable a more flexible system, LANBOX series chassis does not require proprietary components. It supports standard components such as Micro-ATX motherboard, ATX power supply unit, full-size optical disk drive, 3.5” hard disk drive…etc. The modularized chassis design allow all components to be easily removed from the body for simple installation or upgrading.

    To further enhance its multimedia features, LANBOX HT has embedded Media LAB software and front panel hotkey that provide full range of control over all capability of a powerful HTPC (home theater PC). In addition, LANBOX HT also provides a one-of-the-kind structural feature to integrate a Thermaltake retractable motorized 7” touch screen LCD. Without the help with any other input devices, users will have full command over the PC via the touch screen feature.

    With the standardized structural design, extremely small footprint along with wide range of thoughtful features, LANBOX HT will be the first and only choice for any application.

    This case and that new AMD chipset with HDMI would be a sweet combo.

    Actually:

    The Lanbox in aluminum with handle and windows goes for about 120-130
    The Lanbox Lite EXPECT A REVIEW VERY SOON! ;) goes for about 70-80
    I would expect the Lanbox HT to be a bit more expensive than the aluminum variant, so maybe 160-200 max

    cheers

    Agreed. The AMD 690G chipset and this Box would be an awesome combo. I mean, just for the pure fact its a cheap HDTV TIVO type deal.

    Ah man! That's a nice SFF. I think I may be reconsidering my hacked AppleTV idea.
