Thoughts on HP s3330 media center pc
 
Am looking at the new HP Slimline Media Center s3330 PC. It includes an X2 5400+ processor, 2GB ram, 500GB hard drive and an HD DVD/Blu ray combo drive. States it has a nvidia geforce 8500 video card which it states has HDMI capabilities.

Just want to know if anyone has any thoughts on this unit? Any ideas if it is a true HDMI port? Will it support audio and video through HDMI? Priced at $979CDN...seems like a good deal.

Went and saw this box at futureshop...is pretty cool! Small form factor slimline...perfect for the livingroom...and has HDMI port directly out the back with a dual-format HD DVD/bluray player. Only info I am searching now is if the HDMI port carries the 5.1 audio...as the PC has a coax audio port as well. I read on nvidia's website that the geforce 8500 allows you to connect a wire inside to the video card to carry the audio...just not sure if HP took care of that already.

Anyone have this PC yet and can confirm?
