Found 25th Nov 2010
Great specs.
At £139.99 It does still seem a bit pricy but it has a £419.99 RRP at Play so it could be a genuine bargain.

I have checked prices elsewhere and found:
Kikatek £283.27
Datakits £239.99
Laptopsdirect £275.97

Cheapish, but an old piece of kit.

Available for about £95 as a bare device without hard drive. Nasty remote control.

Used wirelessly, it is hopeless for streaming HD.

I know - I owned one.
