    It costs US$89 (£57) but is much more powerful than the Raspberry Pi.

    Looks good - up to date Android and enough power to run stuff properly. If I didn't already have a HTPC I might have considered this.

    Looks a lot more attractive than the raspberry pi, at least my 256MB version. Even overclocked XBMC does not run nearly this smooth.

    My thread on it:

    http://forums.hexus.net/pc-hardware/...-platform.html

    It includes a discussion of all the various ODROID models.

    Marketshare matters! Game on Intel IGPs! Makes gaming a unique experience!

    Agree, RPi with XBMC is painful... Takes all fun away!
