Looks like a slim line PS2 at first glance.

Well at least its Windows 7. I'm surprised the OS wasn't some kind of terrible firmware OS like you see in those cheap 'media' players.

It is very PS2 Slim, I wonder how it handles running Win7, probably not that great with all that Acer eSoft bloatware crammed into it.

No mention of the ethernet being Gigabit either..

pros are Its great looking, albeit very immo of a PS2
cons are it costs too much, probably runs like :eek::cry:
