I was planning on building a PC. I have almost all the components except the processor. But now I'm thinking about getting a small windows notebook and hooking up external hard drive enclosures. I don't think running a PC 24/7 is good on power consumption which is why I like laptops. I currently have a Macbook but I would like to have another PC or laptop dedicated to my movies and music. Maybe I should just stick to a tower PC since I got this far lol. The whole point of the machine is for me to do .NET development, and stream audio/video to my Xbox 360.
