Okoro OMS-GX300 media centre PC
Okoro have released what must be the most extreme media center yet developed: the Okoro OMS-GX300. Following hot on the heels of the launch of Windows Vista, and showing off Microsoft’s new Operating System’s media capabilities to the full, the OMS-GX300 is a PC in a super-cool (and distinctly non-beige) box, featuring some super high-end hardware for complete home entertainment.

More details and full spec of the Okoro OMS-GX300 after the jump.

So why is the OMS-GX300 so extreme? Well, just check out this feature list:

  • Intel Core™2 Extreme QX6700 Kentsfield Quad Core Processor
  • 2 Gigabytes of high speed Kingston HyperX 800MHz RAM
  • nVidia HDCP-ready 8800 GTX video card
  • 1 Terabyte (2x 500GB RAID0) 7200 RPM SATA Hard Drive with 16MB Cache
  • TV Tuners with hardware MPEG-2 encoder.
  • PCI Over-The-Air HDTV Tuner
  • Optional USB HDTV Tuner
  • Realtek ALC888DD SoundCard with 8-CH CODEC w/ DTS support
  • Microsoft Media Center Remote Control w/ IR Blaster
  • Snapstream Firefly Remote Control with USB-UIRT IR Blaster/Receiver

Even the case includes its own 7″ Touch Screen, which doesn’t just show you various status parameters, such as hard disk activity or temperature: it’s a complete 15:9 wide display with HDTV transcoder for 720p HD display!

With a quad core processor, you can even play games such as Half-Life 2 at their maximum resolution in full glorious HD while recording your HD TV shows over the air. Better still, because Vista supports the XBox 360’s controllers, you can use these to play your games – that’s just showing off!

And the price of this beast? A mere $4595! Or wait a couple of years, and get the same features from an entry level machine (ah, the glorious pace of technology!).

  1. As a warning.

    If you purchase a product from Okoro, just ignore the support contact on the web site. As far as I can tell they are not read, and if they are, you will never get a response other than “that’s how it’s suppose to work.”

    Just call them, for whatever that is worth.

    I can’t describe the support as poor, because it’s basically nonexistent.
