Raspberrry Pi Model B with RaspBMC for media streaming

I just bought a Raspberry Pi Model B with the intention of replacing my WIndows 8 laptop in my bedroom that has been running XBMC. I have the laptop in a drawer and it's heating up because of poor venting and the fan is running constantly.

I figure I'll install RaspBMC on it and see how that works.

Does anyone have one of these running at their house?

If so do you care to comment on your experience with it?
