As the PC has grown older over the years, it has not only gotten faster and cheaper, but it has also evolved into more uses. Early on the PC was used mainly for home office work, but as PCs became more powerful an increasing number of users relied on their PCs for gaming and desktop publishing. By the mid 90’s the internet was growing in popularity and many consumers felt they needed a PC for that.
Nowadays, home theater PCs are all the rage. Consumers not only want a box that can perform the traditional PC functions, but can also act as a consumer electronics device. These media PCs are used for listening to MP3s, watching videos/DVDs, and watching and recording television programming. Slowly but surely, the PC has moved from the study/den, into the living room as the centerpiece of many consumers home theater system, while college students in dorm rooms have tossed their TV altogether in favor of a media PC to save space.
