The VidaBox is an ultra-compact "PicoPC" designed to give you a media center without the footprint of an entire PC in one of your console cabinets. For people looking for to hide everything except for the keyboard and remote, this should be the perfect choice for you - given you are in agreement with the price point of $929.

Specs are as follows:

* A mini 1.25-inch thick PC that weighs less than 14oz. and has no moving parts (in other words silent)
* Optional 16GB of built-in solid state storage
* RS-232 / serial port for automation tasks
* Ethernet port
* (2) USB 2.0 ports that can be used for external storage, reading thumb drives with media content, or adding peripherals
* Mic-in & L/R audio out
* Write-protection that safeguards the device from viruses and malware – activated by resetting the unit
* Pre-installed productivity apps for office and browsing duties
* 30-foot range wireless keyboard with trackball
* "VGA output for HD video quality" (not quite sure how "HD" this unit is supposed to get)

Available for $929.
