I got one dirt cheap but still haven't tried mine. I will give it a try soon.

I got one on sale as well. It's not earth-shatteringly good, but it works for an HTPC. I wouldn't buy it if it's not on sale though.

I agree , for ripping movies and basic tasks on my HTPC it is fine ,but I wouldn't want to type a word doc or such on it .

The only purpose it would serve is as a htpc "remote".

I wouldn't pay $89 for it , I got mine on sale for $54 and I've seen them on for a little less from time to time . As I said , for basic tasks and light surfing on my HTPC its fine . I played around with a Denovo and couldn't see paying $150 for it , each to his own I guess . I wish that someone (store) close by would stock a few different mini keypads that you could play with . Also with the denovo ,when I looked around the web forums it seemed to be about 50/50 love hate and the pro mini actually was about 80/20 love /hate
