Alienware: Hangar18

I have been blogging on the collision between the computer industry and the consumer electronics industry for some time. Alienware's Hangar18 represents one of the most serious shots in that battle to date. There are plenty of premium media PCs on the market, and these days plenty that come in an appropriate form factor. This one is different, it has the receiver/amplifier built in.

Not sure that they have hit a home run however, looks to me as if they are more than a little light on connectivity. I don't see where I plug in my HDDVD, BluRay or DVD players. Where is the slot for XM or Sirius? And when will one of these devices come that is satellite TV capable?
