I'm pleasantly surprised. A Gigabyte board. Solid caps (or so it appears), ferrite chokes among other things. Looks like a pretty well built machine.

This is compared to my cable box which runs at about 9,000C with huge through hole electrolytic junk caps.

Not bad. It looks to be well built and with the exception of having a little less flash storage then the AppleTV, it seems like it would be more capable in all the other departments.

The box is my only complaint. I'd prefer one of those passive fully aluminum casings. Laptops have active cooling pads & even passive cooling mats for those who'd like to help out from the outside. Docking stations are nothing new & wireless charging is even possible the same way cordless mice without batteries are done. Some things are best done from the outside, but the casing has to complement these external accessories.

Since it uses commodity hardware like an Atom processor, I wonder if people will be able to put Google TV on their own HTPC? The whole idea would be a lot more appealing to me if that was the case.

I guess i'm still confused on why you'd buy this over a TV Tuner card...
either for a desktop or a notebook.
Its not that hard now-a-days to connect a PC to your TV. Nearly every video card as an HDMI out (or DVI to convert)
