I'm with you on this one. Barebones its sort of on the pricey side. If it came with HD, memory that would be nice.

I guess you are paying for the ability to buy the mobile Intel 'U' BIN part -> can't buy these low power (17w) CPUs and MOBOs elsewhere AFAIK - and the CPU itself is like $230 (or something like that) bin part. I'm sure it'll open the door for lots of OEM and small startups to customize whether for HTPC, signage or other.. I think its about time.. Wish that darn price wasnt so expensive.

Guys, anyone find any info on how powerful this thing is? 1080p, 3D and other stuff shouldn't be a problem, right? Probably enough oomph to keep XBMC fluid too, right?

Also, as far as I can see, no audio outputs, what does one do? I know it has HDMI but components and such are needed.

Full disclosure: I work for WeTek. However, this is my personal account, and my words and opinion are my own.

You can make easy links to the Kodi Wiki Manual using double brackets around common Kodi words: [[debug log]] = debug log (wiki), [[Video library]] = Video library (wiki), [[SMB]] = SMB (wiki) , [[userdata]] = userdata (wiki), etc

Yes, this. The mobile boards with the embedded CPUs are very expensive.
