Seeing and playing with the Nvidia Shield at QuakeCon I was impressed. It was heavy but seemed pretty cool and the booth they had 5 at were always full that the guys running it had to ask people to leave. While at the time I thought $300 was a steep price, you did make a good point Marco.

Yeah, I think it had a lot more functionality than perhaps folks credit it for on first glance. Casting to a larger screen with it, playing games from your PC is a pretty innovative, cool and fun/functional feature, not just a novelty.
