    Looks good. Wonder how it would compare to the Lenovo.

  • Jamie

    I would love this, if it could bitstream hd audio.

  • JohnCz

    Gorgeous device that would be ideal for Windows Media Center. It seems like there is a plate on the front, next the head/mic jacks for maybe an optional IR Receiver. The only other issue I see is that S/PDIF placement oddity.
