    Seriously? Why is this in the listings for Desktops? It's specs are hardly in the desktop category anymore, it's really more of a portable gadget.

    ". This tiny computer features a 700MHz CPU, 512MB RAM, 2 USB ports, HDMI out .",

    Why not just get one of those Android Sticks for about $12 more (around $50) and turn it into a PC. It has dual CPU running over 1GHz, 1GB memory, USB & HDMI ports,.etc.

    I got one of these
    #1 you can put xbmc on there and make it a cool media player

    #2 I tried making it as a cheap NAS device to handle 5 USB drive (on a powered hub) and it had issues
    ---apparently Rpi has USB issues still
    ***use making a cheap server is out

    #3 It can run Ubuntu but being ARM, it doesnt have all the applications available
    ---no Thunderbird for example

    #4 Single CPU

    I also got the Android Stick. This uses the Cortex A9 processor (dual core - upto 1.6 Ghz). I put Ubuntu on it (Pitomatou) and runs much better than the Rpi. And as my cheap NAS it has no USB problems.

    At least for the Android stick, I can boot back to Android and access tons of stuff (including XBMC).

    Spend the the extra $10 on the stick tv
