@spivonious: you are most welcome.  Glad you guys got it for a discount.  Being a serious VC++, Win32API dev in my earlier jobs, I am super partial to systems that are responsive. Infact, I prefer that apps consume less cpu cycles, less memory, so on. 

Please do post updates, like for example how easy is it to play stuff on the Big TV, Skype experience, good apps, so on.
