    re: Couple of things

    From reading the site, Mini PC doesn't appear to include bluetooth without a USB adapter (15). The price on the store quoted by MacNN doesn't include international shipping or potential import/export taxes. But fair is fair, and the Mac mini doesn't include a TV tuner.

    Even though the current generation Mini PC doesn't support HD, I guess since you have to sacrifice a USB port for bluetooth on the mini PC, we'll do the same for TV tuning on the Mac mini comparison. Hence, the Elgato eyeTV Hybrid; $150 -- which does support HD, composite, coax, and S-Video.

    That package also includes eyeTV software which was recently upgraded to feature full operation within Front Row and full support for DVR control.

    With taxes included (according to electronista) the model which is priced as the same as this current generation one costs $1500 USD and the very media center capable Mac mini ringing in at $1000 with a HD tuner and Optical audio.

    I don't get the big deal about having to label the computer a media center; the Mac mini with Front Row and a (eyeTV compatible) TV tuner is perfect for many such things. While being compatible with Mac OS X or Windows.

    Needless to say though, this announcement does put pressure on Apple to use Core 2 Duo across the line.

    Aspyr has progressed

    ...but, I don't feel that they do enough to push multiplayer gaming on the Mac. As someone who used to frequent the third-party Game Ranger service, I don't much care for the way that operation has run askew. Aspyr obviously sells games to more than 20 people (about the active number of people on Game Ranger per game) -- if Aspyr is only selling games to 20 people, I don't know how they stay alive.
