Bryan Powell notes a major discrepancy between the new, mid-range $1600 CD-RW Cube and the previous mid-range model. The previous model included a 40 GB drive and RADEON graphics, while the new model features a 20 GB drive and Rage 128 graphics. "What it amounts to is you are paying $300 for 64 MB of RAM and a CD-RW drive. Considering the fact that you are able to select a DVD-ROM drive when customizing the system for no change in price, you are actually paying $300 for 64 MB of RAM. This is intensely frustrating as I had cancelled a previous order to get this machine, and now I am cancelling this one."
