    I'd love a port of diablo/2/2X and starcraft/brood war for this. also an RPG maker PC client for this would kick ass. I'd love to pick one up anyway.

    That sounds like quite an awesome bit of kit, might be worth getting one when the price drops a bit and there is more content for them.

    OUCH! £200?!

    For the price of a 360, this is just not worth it.

    I quite like the retro design looks like my old electric dictionary :D I am definetly interested in this little toy for christmas, lets face it, if the price was less and the screen was a little bigger it could be a good contender against the eee and eee-a-likes out there with the kind of connectivity it is sporting

    I like the look , its looks chunky. Im fed up with all these shiny, round corner, easily scratched , hinges breaking cheap plastic pieces of junk.

    GO GO retro. now if it was made out of brick and lava rock...mmmmmmm....lol

    unless you consider that there is no peace of hardware anywhere that can do what the pandora can do for that price and size.
