So then it's effectively a budget HTPC.

I've read he wants 3 versions or something, each more powerful and more expensive than the last. So what's the point of it over a dedicated gaming PC?

New consoles, disappointing or not, are the only real option aside from PC gaming and skipping the generation (which, assuming it lasts 6 years, isn't really feasible).

Nothing wrong with the interface - it's different but once you get used to it you'll find you're just as productive, if not more, than when using Windows 7. General performance is faster,...
