RE: Equiso alternatives
There's a new product at BestBuy alongside the Sony and Vizio Google TV boxes:

It only has Gingerbread, and it's over-priced, but it seems to perform well:

Found G-box midnight. Looks very good, supports SD card, has wireless and Ethernet, comes with jellybean, looks like true support without any convoluted methods to upgrade firmware which is done easily with an update within systems settings. Xbmc per installed, dual core A9. Price around 100$ and not a beta

RE: Equiso alternatives
The iMito MX1 looks like the best alternative to me so far. I'm almost tempted to get one, and test it out. Even though my equiso actually is performing ok. I mean, it's not fast, but it does the job. Exept hd streams over network, thats not usable, for the time being at least.
Anyway, link to the iMito:

Reasonably priced to if you ask me Tongue

@ Zodiac69
Wow, that looks promising. Guess the best thing to do right now if you want something like this is to wait a month or two though. I mean, they are evolving so fast, it's insane. It has to slow down soon, but at that point, i think the devices will have mind blowing capabilities (bearing their size in mind) It seems the quadcore you linked to is already very close to be linux/ubuntu compatible, which is just awesome. Makes me wonder if these are going to be the next "every mans computer." Cheap, small, decent deisign (on some at least), and with enough power for most tasks, short of film and photo- editing and serious gaming.

RE: Equiso alternatives
Purchased and received the G-box Midnight, ~$99 shipped. Works like a champ, everything the equiso should have been. Dual core A9, 4 USBs, SD card support, wifi support, plus more. I was wrong about it having jelly bean though, it has ICS. XBMC and video support over the network actually works on this box with no lagging at all. Moved my equiso stick to the BR tv where I can still use it for music and for time when I want to attempt to watch videos, which are hit or miss (more miss).
