All I use my HTPC for is playing recorded over the air recordings from my basement server. Things that can be done well enough with a 1W Raspberry Pi. Total price around $50 if you have peripherals already sitting around.

I've got a 3 year old Intel Ion powered Ubuntu server that spends most of its time waiting and it still draws 30W (compare and contrast with a new Mac Mini Server's 11W idle, much less sleep). Someone would do the world a good deal of benefit if they could make Linux squeeze more energy efficiency out of non-specialized hardware. Oh, did I mention I was Amazon's 191st ranked reviewer...

Apple would never do something as visually tacky as use blue USB 3.0 ports. The ports are the appropriate color for the given Mac. For instance on the new mini, they are charcoal to match the rest of the back plate, while on the Macbook pro, they are a tasteful silver.
