Wanna ditch cable. Please help me watch online.

Hello I am tired of cable. It costs a fortune and I watch less than 10 channels. I want to ditch it. I think there is enough free or cheap content online (HULU, NETFLIX, etc) that I can do without it. Here is where I need some help. I don't want to tie up my laptop while I watch TV. I like to multitask. I want to purchase a small desktop or nettop that will be connected to TV all the time. I would like recommendations as to what to get. Is there a specific model I should be looking for? Or what specifications would be needed for good smooth playback? It would be nice if I could watch DVDs, but not a must. I would like to keep my cost down. Any good articles on the topic?
Also, if you have any suggestions about software I will want, or good websites for online shows, I would appreciate those suggestions as well. Thanks in advance.
