    300 would have been a fair price I think.

    I'm not so disappointed. I reckon this could be the killer box for apple, it's a great treat for potential switchers and iPod lovers. This could well be my first Apple purchase - a SFF Unix box, Mac OS X... I'll definately get the bluetooth upgrade and 512Mb in there, top that with a KVM and it looks ready to rock.

    I also imagine that some clever modder will build it into a PC case too as some kind of freaky multiplatform box (hook up a DVD RW drive to it via usb2 and the job's half done).

    I'll always love PC's more, but I'd love to just play with one of these.
