It may not be a household name, but Okoro makes one fine media center PC. Their 2010 line just got a lot more appealing with a bit of future proofing and the addition of Intel i3 and i5 processors. The processor upgrade does more than just pick up the performance. It allows for new features to be added too.
Okoro has made use of the additional power by adding bitstreaming of Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. The 2010 line of Okoro media center PCS all come stock with a 64-bit copy of Windows 7 installed. They can be ordered with anywhere from one to eight terabytes of storage and can record HD content with CableCARD technology. They’ve even got support for up to four different tuners.
USB 3.0 is the other major change. Including a USB 3.0 port brings a huge amount of possibilities to the table, but none that are readily available. The ultra fast transport standard could mean big things for HTPCs in the future.
