I'm definitely gonna pick this up as a replacement for my RK3066 based Android mini PC. Being Tegra 3 based can only be a good thing, if I am to judge how well performing my LG 4X is.

Shield will follow suit as well.

Why would I bother if it doesn't even have Tegra4 yet which is what will move mobile GPUs much more ahead? $99 is attractive but Tegra3? That old has-been tech? Gah!

Biggest reason at least for me is to see how well it handles homebrew/xmbc. It's also possible that provided I can run emulators I have something I can replace the Wii with eventually.

I do like the price point, small size, and what seem like decent games and LOTS OF THEM verses what seems like a beyond-dead WiiU with such low developer adoption.

Agreed on the WiiU. It's not a bad pricepoint and I plan to wait till other people start picking up the device to gauge it's usefulness. Wii I paid 99 for it new and softmodded with an old wd my book I had laying around. The fact that I can run all the old games and wiiware make it a solid performer in my house. The only real wii games that get played a ton are the just dance (better on kinect imo) the kirby games and some pokepark if it's not the ds/gba pokemons.

Nothing compares to a real htpc. Tried the mini-android htpc and scrapped it. Tegra4 wont change my mind.

What was the reason? Lack of support? Cumbersome? Price?
