Instead of using a net-top architecture (atom or the like) they used a full 2.7GHz CPU and put this effort into making that nearly silent. The article talks about their efforts on fan selection, placement, control and vibration dampening. This route was chosen to "give more headroom" for CPU hungry apps (web and otherwise) including adobe flash. The solution costs $279, Is this an appropriate tradeoff for a device powering your TV?
