    If you really want quad cores in a small package...

    HP is using the Phenom X4 9100e for the Pavilion Slimline s3430f. It's a 65W quad core part and a little pricey compared to its other Phenom siblings but much cooler.

    The extra cores should make it a nice encoding box and it sports a full sized 5.25" optical drive. The operating system options are rather lacking though.

    Yeah... where's OS X? :rolleyes:

    Not a bad machine otherwise, I guess.

    Great Specs...

    "Aside from its processor, the new HP Pavilion Slimline s3430f desktop features a compact enclosure, an Asus motherboard with Nvidia GeForce 6150SE integrated graphics, 4GB of DDR2-800 RAM, a GeForce 8500 GT discrete graphics processor, a 500GB hard drive, and a Blu-ray disc drive. You also get a TV tuner, PCI Express x16 and x1 slots (although the x16 is taken by the 8500 GT), FireWire, Gigabit Ethernet, and HDMI video output."

    If it ran OS X, I'd take it in a heartbeat just like any other PC.
