Do HTPC's become obsolete?

Well, I guess they must. But what is the expected life of one? Longer than a regular computer? For example, if you bought a Revo, do you think it would be unable to play television at some point because the technology passed it?

I agree with Hugh.

JPEG's haven't changed in 15 years. MP3's either.

The only difference with video is HD or SD. Machines made these days have no problem with both, so it won't become "obsolete" for a very long time- at least until blu-ray is superseded.

I have an Acer Aspire Revo and it does the job very well for both SD and HD. I don't plan on replacing it any time soon.
