    Will it reach the shops before the next mainstream socket comes out?

    The latter is likely to be overkill for a HTPC build, but a cheaper Core i3 or Core i5 CPU could be the perfect choice when you factor in Intel's integrated HP graphics
    Saucy
    My only concern is should I hide my true identity? A costume maybe?

    0iD: Plus weeing in it every now & again does it good
    scaryjim: 10" is just a little large to hold comfortably in one hand, which makes it a lot harder to tap, swipe and generally interact with.

    EDIT: They have kits 2x4GB kits.

    AT LAST! Been waiting for this (or something like it) for ages. Now all they have to do is release it to retail.

    I wouldn't be using that PCIe x16 for graphics - that's where my Cinergy 2400i DT would be going (which I'd eventually replace with a HD satelite dual-tuner when I get FreeSat).

    Baius
    Tech: NAS | D2 | L1 | N1 | T2 | U1 | P3

    0iD@TWDJT: P: Test flight OK, except auto-land very rough.
    S: Auto-land not installed on this aircraft.
