Looks about the size of a Wii, shame its Acer. I'll wait untill a different company brings something like this out before I even consider it for say an emulation/mame box or whatever.

Wow. Super price. Any more news on the Atom 330 unit? The 330 is a much more flexible starting point for doing something interesting with the unit.

IMO, the 249.99 model SHOULD be using an Atom 330. A $330 only costs $5 more, but offers 100% better performance.

Nonetheless, great price considering it includes good HDD size, 2GB RAM, and MS OS.

Hooray for Atom chips now paired with crappy Intel video! Yay!

Would love one of these for an HTPC. Wonder how it works with Mythbuntu...

EDIT: that was supposed to be "not paired with" :P
