This seems like a very useful device, especially with the wireless connectivity. I don't like the video capabilities though, especially seeing that more and more notebooks come with either 1900 or 1600 resolution by default now.
HD Player, what is the point. if you need your music to port over to your desktop, use a usb drive, or network your laptop and plug in the lan.
