S
eems like a pretty interesting device, would make a great HTPC or family PC

For $99, I think it is well worth it, but 32Gb storage is probably just not enough...

I am considering getting one when it hits Microsoft store. 
My newegg order got cancelled twice, tried both OneSmart card and ANZ Visa, both got rejected...

Anyway, any thoughts on the device?

It will be in the officlal windows store?

Imho it makes little sense without miracast or something similar. Does it have something like that?

That looks very cool. Not totally sure what I would do with it...
You can expand the storage with sd cards.
I think 4gb of ram would be better though. 2gb seems a little light. Mind you I have seen plenty of cheap laptops with 2gb on the market.

Wonder how it would go as a media device hooked up to the TV. HEVC perhaps?
