Boxee Media Streamer Nettop

The Boxee Box – called a ‘box’ but it’s actually a nettop computer under the skin.  Just like the Google TV.  Both of these guys use nearly identical processors, the Intel CE4110 in Boxee and the CE4150 in Google TV, each clocked at 1.2GHz. In the case of the Boxee Box, much of the interior space is used for the heat sink and fan to cool that processor. Ifixit did a teardown and also found inside include 1GB of RAM, 1GB of flash memory,  and a digital-to-analog audio converter to allow for 1080p video out of HDMI while still using legacy audio hardware.
