W7 Media Center on X131 or other X1xx?

#1 Post by JBuzzard » Thu Feb 05, 2015 4:12 pm

Has anyone tried running Win7's Media Center on one of these laptops hooked up to 1080p HDTv via HDMI? I'm about to buy/build a little NUC-like PC for a bedroom media PC attached to a large external drive and was wondering if these little thinkpads are able to drive a HDTV and play up to 1080p ripped videos given that off eBay they can be much cheaper than building a small PC. Anyone tried this yet?

In case you are looking for an X131e, I have one for sale: http://forum.thinkpads.com/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=116187
It has W7 Ultimate/SP1 64-bit installed.
It also has this Media Center, but I do NOT have a HDMI cable to connect to a TV.
Anything else I could do to see if your wish would come true?
Still NOT a great day for a Guinness! (the Real Black Stuff).
