Some PC users think that it’s a complicated business to hook up their TVs to their system. But the truth is, it doesn’t have to be. In fact, all it takes to create your dream theater is a laptop. A laptop can be easily placed among your other home theater components and moved where you need it to be. But whether you use a desktop or laptop, there are minimum requirements.
In order to avoid any lag in the configuration and general usage of your PC home theater system, it’s a good idea to ensure your computer has at least Windows XPO installed, along with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor running at 2.4 GHz or more. You should also ensure that your computer has at least 2GB of RAM and an HDMI port. Those wanting to use Mac computers for their system should ensure that an Intel Core Duo process running at 1.6 GHz or more, and at least one GB of RAM is available. For operating systems, the Mac OS X Snow Leopard, version 10.6.3 or better is recommended.
