This is pretty cool but not what I was hoping for.
I was hoping for something that would attach to my TV, but this would make a good second/third TV for the bedroom or den.
I would have much rather have had a Mac mini sized device that would become part of my home theater system and act like a DVR. I am sure that is do-able with this by adding an eyeTV, but is not as elegant as an all in one.
