We know, vendors have to get rid of these leftover HD DVD drives somehow, but it’s still a tad comical to see brand new systems shipping with support for a format that perished over a year ago. Nevertheless, we’re still pretty jazzed about Kinetic’s HD:Hub, as the built-in HD DVD drive is actually a dual-format player that handles the very much alive Blu-ray format as well. Furthermore, this one comes with a potent Core i7 processor, up to four TV tuners, 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi, a Creative X-Fi Titanium sound card and Windows Vista runnin’ the show. There’s no mention of a price, but we get the feeling that these are mostly reserved for those across the pond.
