How do they define `success of` ?

I`ve not seen one in the field yet, nor have I seen one in public (perhaps in a shop).

Do they mean `acceptance of` ? I know there are enthusiasts that have some in north america cos they have forums and stuff.

Any1 on here that threatened to get one - got one ?

This'll be good. Instead of hacing Compaqs and E-Machines, we could trust a New Pre-Build Computer.

If it only works out at around £100 and has a good spec, it could be good for a nice cheap HTPC system

I`ll checkup on some sales figures a bit later. 350k units by the end of 2007 they reckon. 3 to 5 million by the following year.

i work in schools so they fit in just right, we've been trying to get one for the last month to play with, but there always sold out. So i would say there a success.

I've also held one, not powered on though. i just wish the screen was bigger.

In the uk, cost a bit more, watch the shipping. They got promo banners going on too, easy to link.

Masses of places u can order it from. The only oos I got from my shortcut list was Scan - Scan have no eta as yet, which is weird.
