watchbox

When you first lay your eyes on this, chances are you will think that this is some sort of HTPC or small form factor machine from a computer manufacturer. You will be pleasantly surprise to find out that this is the brainchild and handiwork of Andrew Macdonald, who came up with the case mod with his Xbox as an inspiration. This passively cooled machine will come with HDMI, optical and coax S/PDIF, eSATA, and USB connectivity alongside 802.11n Wi-Fi support and a hot-swappable drive bay. An Intel Atom 330 1.6GHz processor is accompanied by NVIDIA ION graphics, 4GB RAM and a custom Windows XP hack running Boxee Beta as its operating system of choice. An internal flash drive helps keep things running quiet underneath the chassis.
