And why would you pay $499 when you can get 360 addon for $160 after coupon? (although I've heard they don't respect their $40 coupons anymore so it is $199). Still $299 difference, almost good for A1.

360 addon can be installed internally with 2.5 to 3.5 $5 IDE adaptor from eBay.

People have done it and succeeded.

Wow this thing will be discontinued quickly at that price point. Why not just buy a set top unit for that money or save some cash and get HTPC flexibility, and get the 360 add-on?

And I still suspect that one would have to rip the HD-DVDs and remove the protection to watch them on a computer.

It still does not justify the price but remember the HP includes the HP customized version of Power Ultra DVD.. supposedly it is solid. So it is in facts is a $200 difference not a $299 difference and if the software works properly than the difference in value really narrows.

Just another blank signature.
