    Isn't this just a super-expensive pogoplug?

    Yay, more apple centric over priced "design" pieces. For what it is drobo is stupidly over valued and given a thoroughly good beating by the likes of Synology and QNAP gear.
    I can see this being just the same. So yes, as previously mentioned this will be nothing more than a ridiculously overpriced pogoplug. But the Cult of Jobs devotees will lap it up.

    For those not on the marketing-lingo bandwagon, this is a low-spec home server in an awkwardly shaped box.
