Might have to pick one of these up. As for the why if you have a tablet or smartphone? I'd gladly pay $100 to not have to dink around opening up my av cabinet to plug in my phone or tablet to my surround receiver. From what I have read it does not have an Ethernet port which is disappointing since it is a fixed device, but I guess it is cheap. Would be better for streaming...but really a htpc trumps everything for playing video and I have one, so mostly just a game console for the kids for me.

The Wikipedia states that it does have an Ethernet port. I'm hoping it does, because wireless N isn't always fast enough for high bit rate 1080p videos.
