It’s tiny form factor, OSX, its sleek style, and its cool little remote all sold you on the idea of using it as a DVR or media center PC. Who can blame you? It was a great idea at the time… until you came to the realization that while it maximum hard drive capacity of 160GB cuts it for a DVR, it’s not really acceptable for your pride and joy of a music collection, your family’s hundred thousand picture collection, and those movies you ripped to the hard drive.
