What features set Somefa apart from other PCs and makes it the first HEPC?

Somefa One records up to 6 channels at once and works with any U.S. cable provider. To enjoy live TV and DVR recordings on any TV set in any room, simply pair Somefa One with one or more Xbox® 360s.
Plug and Play your Gaming Console
Somefa One has the ability to integrate your Xbox® 360, PS3 or other gaming consoles within Windows® 8. Simply plug in a gaming console, open capture software then play, record or stream game play on a HDTV, projector or monitor.
Somefa One can also multitask these functions, programs and apps all simultaneously.

The possibilities are endless.
Not many PCs or home entertainment devices look this good. Somefa One has an all aluminum chassis with sand-blasted finish and was designed to fit in just about any home entertainment center. However, Somefa One is not all about good looks. This chassis uses passive cooling technology to cool the CPU without a processor fan for quieter operation.
Somefa One is paired with Cideko's Air Keyboard. The Air Keyboard's combination of mini wireless keyboard and 3-D gyro mouse that gives the ability to easily control Somefa One from the comfort of a sofa. Surf the web, compose emails and update a status on a social network with ease.
Upgradeable and Customizable
There is no need to hide the fact that technology can become dated in a few years. Lots of companies try to lock consumers in with products that doesn't allow them to upgrade internal components or parts. This only leaves them with the option to buy a new product or continue using a product that is just about obsolete.
Somefa one at its core is a PC and just about every component is upgradable. Upgrade the CPU, memory, motherboard, operating system and more. With a little know how, their chassis allows access to easily replace or add parts.
