Gonna pick one up and make a set-top box.I'm skeptical of whether or not it would be able to play videos and stuff. No confirmation on whether or not it has any network access either. The only way it would is if it were using HDMI 1.4's 100Mbps ethernet feature.Also, there are sub-$100 LCD monitors on Newegg. You could outfit an entire lab with these things for a very small amount of money.
other than being really small, is it that much cheaper?

Making fun of your dangling modifier, brah.o3oWhat 'bout it?
The way you wrote that sentence, it sounds like the HDTV, not the computer, was the size of a usb stick.

These small enough for you?
