Detailed review
Was already a very good system (though expensive), for its time, I picked it up for its potential as being the Dreamcast successor, and some of the best looking game of this generation.
But XBMC really made it shine, and made it the best Media center (somehow even beating the Xbox360 and PS3 for the media support)
