I can't eat anything right now. I'm prepping for an upper and lower gastrointestinal endoscopy. Smile

That does look like an awesome little machine. I don't see anything mentioned about the price or specs though.

I'm guessing $599 and will have spec's that smoke the Mini.

Yeah...But it's a Dell. I think it's cool that somebody's finally coming up with a form factor to compete with the mini, but it's a Dell. Never been impressed with Dell hardware.

If this was a HP, then it would be something, IMHO.

HP was actually making a neat little box with Blu-ray, but I think they stopped making them. I believe it even included a built-in ATSC tuner.

I really like the overall design. Well, except for the big Inspiron Zino HD logo smacked across the front. I know it was smart of them to go with the tray-loader for Blu-ray. That will help keep the cost down. I would consider buying one for under $600 with the right specs.

Apple moves slower than molasses on new hardware. Asus, Dell and HP release more new machines in a week than Apple does in two years. I'm not saying that's a great thing, but come on already. Except for counting his money, what the heck does Jonathan Ive even do all day? This isn't the car business where you sit back and make pretty concept pictures and clay models for people to drool over. You gotta move, move, move, moive. Okay, end of rant. Smile
