It's shiny, well designed, and the right product for their line, but it's priced too high.
Put it at $1400 instead and it'd win at everything, but at $1800 for a 1.6ghz proc? Sorry, too steep.
That said, I think it'll sell pretty well because it's Apple and it's thin and shiny, but they could've locked up the game if they'd gone a little lower.
Apple TV2? thbbb.
The new Time Capsule on the other hand? Nailed it!
Shared network HD (usb expandable), router with gigabit interfaces, USB print server, and a wifi-N access point for a reasonable price.
I think this'll be the sleeper product of the announcement.

Ditto. Even $1600 would have been something.
Post massively updated btw.

You'll notice I didn't even mention it.
...compared to Napster's monthly prices, itunes is ridiculous too, but people prefer it for some reason that I can't fathom.
oooh, I think the Time Capsule is awesome. I would love to have that.
When they release the next version and drop the price on the earlier ones, I might consider it. That said, I never buy the first gen of any mac product...

Sorry, but at that prize I'd still not forgive them for putting in a slow-ass 4200RPM (!?) drive.
yeah... server-grade 1TB HDD and all that gravy? I'm in once I get my income tax refund ;o)
I'd rather have an Eee PC. And I think I WILL soon.
