I would likely plug a few externals into the HTPC to handle the bulk of the strage as well as a smaller internal hard drive for the OS. (i like to take my externals with me on trips)
I would also like to be able to transfer files to and from the HTPC wirelessly at a reasonable speed.
Any ideas on the OS/setup that would work simply and easy to setup. I was thinking XBMC.
Also the specs that would be required i would even appreciate component advice.
Thanks in advance.
