Maybe one of these days we could finally get an Xbox360 emulator for the PC and people wouldn't have to worry about spending 17k on a all-in-one machine.

I was going to request a review sample and then saw the price. Canada Customs would have a bloody field day with that thing if the paperwork wasn't filled out perfectly.

"Sir, you owe us $4K in customs charges and duties on this item you will be sending back after you are done with it"...yeah effing right.

surprisingly the little bugger is not a bad choice, if you can buy a porsche or ferrari every second month of the calendar year. great choice to show your frends who have a el cheapo custom 5k pc . and no, it doesnt look that expensive when you see it picking up dust on the floor ^^


as for customs, its easy. sample, 0 resell value, insurance will be interesting though..

I'm sure they probably flew reviewers in The cost of shipping alone would likely have been a plane ticket.

An Xbox 360 in with a computer what? why? That is just stupid, not only is it just going to add heat to the loop but if you are adding top of the line everything why would you play on a $200 console unless it was a console only game. I mean if you are paying a few grand for graphics cards alone I would think you where wanting to play games on the pc not with the built in xbox 360.
