The system is more than a just a regular PC though - it's a home server
system. The PC is designed to act as a central store point for media,
either downloaded from the Internet, or captured over the air via its
integrated TV tuner. The RA304 bundle includes a Network Media Receiver,
a box that connects directly to a TV via composite, S-Video or component
(which gives a far better picture). Content can them be streamed to the
box via wireless or wired Ethernet. If your set up at home isn't yet
wireless, Sony has bundled a rather snazzy looking wireless access point.
This home server approach isn't new for Sony though. We looked at a
predecessor of this machine a year and a half ago, here.
