It's pretty much a complete rip off of the mac mini, but it used intel's blazingly fast Pentium M processor.

Its smaller than the mac mini. I might buy one and throw windows media edition on it. I love my eyetv but it could be better.

If you are thinking it's smaller than the Mac mini, based on the dimensions quoted in the article

The company said it developed the device - sized 3.9 x 3.9 x 1.9 inches - in cooperation with Intel

I think those dimensions are wrong. How can it only be 3.9 inches wide and still have a slot big enough to fit a DVD? DVDs are approx. 5 inches in diameter!

True - think they meant 6.9 inches.
