Laptop or Desktop - with optical out
Since my Viao had decided to commit suicide, I'm thinking of replacing it if the repair costs are prohibitive, so just doing some research up front.
What would be a good choice for streaming music, I'd need min 6G of RAM, and an optical out. I don't want a MAC so thanks in advance for the suggestion - since I've learned from MajorFubar that iTunes isn't quite as pure and direct as I'd thought, plus I don't have (and probably never will) an iPhone, or any other Apple products.
I guess the alternative is to buy a dedicated streamer.
