Price: $695 (save $25)
We're big fans of the ASRock Ion 330HT-BD — it crams everything you'll need to play 1080P HD movies, browse the Web and play a few games into a box that's hardly larger than a stack of music CDs. The $720 asking price is a bit steep, though — you can find it for $695
to make it a little less painful on your wallet. If you don't need Blu-ray playback, you can also find a cheaper version with a DVD drive and no wireless networking for as little as $318.
