This Barebone Media PC comes with an Intel motherboard, 7.1 surround sound, digital TV card, WiFi card and 1GB of RAM in a box which looks almost, but not quite, like a JVC VHS cassette recorder of 1978 vintage. For this reason, I am going to tag it as retro, even though the manufacturer clearly believes it is the height of modern fashionista drooliness. Just add your choice of hard drive and DVD burner for a full-on PVR experience. £149.99.
