The perfect living room PC is likely to be a lot more expensive than this model, and would probably handle serious gaming as well as the usual surfing and media playing. Having said that, if you've already got a decent games console under your TV, you've probably got enough to keep you occupied. Otherwise, this is a handy system at a reasonable price, which does a commendable job of bringing PC benefits to your big-screen TV.
