I never said i was getting it for graphical use, that would be retarded. Im getting it more for coding, like html and junk, it's easier for me to do that stuff on PCs. It's just this pc im looking at comes with the Media Center Edition of XP and I want to know what it is before I tell them to just load it with Pro.
I don't know how an operating system can allow you to watch TV, that's what a TV card and software does. You will still need a TV card, most likely many of the OEM machines bundled with XP media also have a TV card.
