What Xtreamer have done with the Ultra is to offer a nettop type mini-computer with a layer of software adapted for multimedia playback. This souped up HTPC with its Atom processor and 4 GB of RAM comes with a Linux OS that has been reworked by Xtreamer to provide XBMC or Boxee straight to the user. A great idea! The Ultra is obviously part of the Xtreamer range, looking very much like a large SideWinder. The design, with all those fins, won't be to everyone's taste however. Don't be fooled by the radiator look either: there's still a fan inside and when hot air is expelled it makes quite a bit of noise. It comes with two remotes. The first is standard, with luminous buttons but the second is more original and has a backlit mini-keyboard with a touchpad and a laser pointer the purpose of which isn't at all clear. Both look rather entry-level, with poor plastics and a slapdash finish. There are several options for browsing your multimedia files. The 8 GB USB key that comes with the machine houses a version of Linux (Ubuntu base) modified by Xtreamer. When you start it up, you can either launch the operating system as it is or the XBMC or Boxee system.
