"As usual with Apple Products - less for more..."2.0 starson by scott2753
Pros: The HDMI is a nice touch - case design looks solid and attractive.
Cons: Brand new, but as someone else pointed out, already dated. VERY low RAM in a day and age when they could have easily given more for that price. Not having Blue-Ray - again for THAT price is simply ridiculous.
Summary: As is usual with Apple products, you get far less yet pay far more. An HTPC is actually a simple thing and easily to build even with limited knowledge using bare bones kits if you don't want to buy one already built that would run rings around this overpriced thing. This device is brand new, yet so limited in its low onboard RAM and no Blue Ray support. One would think that for the staggering price of $699.99 Apple could have given more.
