Build a business case: developing custom apps

A remote control is included and will come in handy when watching movies. One thing that does sour the movie experience, however, is the speakers. They’re loud, but distortion is audible even when set just above half volume – thankfully it’s possible to hook up a set of surround sound speakers using the optical audio port at the rear.

Plenty of interfacing at the rear

The MT22 includes a digital TV tuner, but there are two problems with it. First off, it’s not integrated and therefore takes up a USB port; there is a built-in aerial point at the rear of the device, but this appears to be totally redundant. Secondly, it’s not a dual-tuner model, so there’ll be none of that recording two channels at the same time lark.

Raw power certainly isn’t one of the MT22’s strong points. The Intel Pentium T4400 processor is very much a budget choice and really only suited to relatively basic tasks. It’s provided with 3GB of memory, while graphics are catered for by an Nvidia Ion chipset.
