I have to second that, I got a good deal (at the time 2 years ago) on my setup. 900$ for a compact desktop (whole cpu built into a flatscreen monitor) wireless everything 80 gb 17" lcd monitor, not to mention av in, coax in, dobly sourround out wi fi built in, remote controll (so cool being able to controll your computer from your bed) and Im sure I am forgetting something cool...
I believe they were normally marketed in the 2000$ range, thank you tigerdirect
! google "Gateway 610 series Media Center" if you want to see what it goes for now, I couldnt tell you, and am too lazy to do it myself.
and I cant forget the free after rebate cross scrolling optical mouse I got from them too. (rebate did take nearly 8 mos to process, but it cost me 15$+shipping so it really didnt matter, its a good mouse)
