TV on PC

I've dug through the archives, googled my fingers off, and I'm tired of all the searching. All I want to know if there is a fairly cheap, easy to set up, decently functional media center PC out there to be bought off the shelf. I don't want to do any hacking or tweaking, just want it to work.

Suggest for me a Portable Media Center

My birthday is coming up and what I really want is a portable media center. I want a device that plays all the major formats of video (without a lengthy conversion process -- this is key) and plays mp3s. I want for it to have an easy to use and good looking interface, small enough dimensions to fit into most pockets and at least 20 GB of storage space. My price range is $500 or less. And forget the iPod Video, as I understand it it will accept only .mov files (but please correct me if I'm wrong -- which I hope I am). Suggest away!

Question: What are the best peripherals for them to use the Mini as a second computer in the **living room**? (which wireless keyboard, adapters for hooking the Mini to the TV, etc?) [more inside]
