    Without the media center remote, media center is a bit limited, but I'm assuming you're planning to get a TV-in card (USB2) with a remote (or already have one). Tho, if you're planning to watch it on the laptop, you really don't need the remote anyway. Are you planning to use the "Tivo" functions of XPMC? If so, you might need to look into an external hard drive as well.

    For everything else you should be fine, although you will need to install other codecs for divx and so on
