Can you imagine the potential of such a device if Apple had the slightest motivation to enter the home media market?!?!

This is a very cool little machine, but had Apple put a little more thought into this computer, they'd have massive potential in the home theatre market. Make the case bigger, more memory on the video card, front usb jacks, 250-500 gig Hard Drive, and some A/V input/outputs and you've got yourself one hell of a multi-purpose media server. It would cost Apple next to nothing to provide a program guide for TV recording.... Adding Cablecard technology (although highly unlikely) would seal the deal.

Essentially you'd have home center for internet, gaming, PVR, iTunes, CD creation, DVD player and recorder... so close. Somebody buy Apple a clue.

Ofcourse how directv couldn't continue charging $1k for the HD Tivo under these conditions...
