System: I would get one of these:

http://www.popcornhour.com/onlinestore/index.php?pluginoption=catalog


I recommend the A-110


"This item is out of stock"  I suspect that there are no more and judging by the reports in the PCH news group the C200  is not ready for primetime yet..

I'd go for the WDTV box, Way cheaper than the C200 and I suspect over this year these media players will be way more common and a good price..

Actually they are made to order so they usually say out of stock, you place an order and they ship straight from the factory to you, they are amazing little boxes. And yes the C200 is the latest and it is not fully ready yet so you should go for the A110

I was about to go out and buy a WDTV LIVE but then I saw this...
http://www.electronista.com/articles/10/01/04/popcorn.hour.sequel.handles.1080p

The thing that I'm really after is the ability to stream via iTunes and the Popbox can do that!

On a local network, the Popbox can stream content from an iTunes computer or media server using Apple's Bonjour and can also recognize content delivered by DLNA and UPnP sources.

More details and specs...
