Alx9r's Orbiters Setup
Aside from the usual on-screen orbiter, I use a Windows XP laptop to control LinuxMCE. The laptop is a bit big and clunky to have on the coffee table full-time, so I really ought get a webpad or PDA to act as my coffee-table orbiter full time.

Coffee Table Orbiter
I am currently hunting for a coffee table orbiter. I am leaning toward the Nokia N800. This orbiter would be used as a supplement to the on-screen orbiter. I find it more comfortable to use the orbiter on my laptop than the on-screen orbiter, but would rather have something smaller for the coffee table.
