You should correct the text though for typos, etc.

 

There should be a space after comma in "New Design,New Experience" eg "New Design,_New Experience".

 

And the rest doesn't sound right in English, Maybe something like "A highly attractive, one-piece aluminium case from the same production line as the multi-award winning MacBook Air"

I am very excited for the new box, just saying my hope:

1. vidon xbmc update to gotham

2. powerful hardware, more ram and rom, plays 1080p videos better than av200

I would like to see the branding more prominent.

 

I think it is also the time to make the logo more geometric, Ie: Perfect circles

 

I have done a quick mock-up to show what I mean.

I don't like the perfect circles. the original logo is more sporty, more activity.

Such a pretty box, I can't wait to hear its price, given that AV200 was $239 (then 60% cut off), I'm afraid this box's price will go higher, what about your opinion? (I won't invest on it if higher than $100 :kbs: )

Hmmmm... isn't it the same CPU as AV200? How would the performance enhancement come from?

The Memory Clock seems to be higher...

 

 

 

All Mele Derivates seem to have severe Quality Issues...on mine  two Boxes they used non Standard Ethernet Connectors,

with one Hand on the Plug it works (sometimes).........but thats not what i expect to do in the Living Room.

 

A Good Reason to change....
