Yeah, we don't exactly envision too many individuals getting hands-on time with the XUDU XL -- you know, considering the $999 sticker -- but we were able to stop by and snap a couple shots of the suddenly luxurious device. In case you haven't noticed, the only difference between the new one and the predecessor is a slick new silver logo, the loss of an RF antenna (replaced with an IR receiver), a 1TB drive within and a price tag pushing four digits. So yeah, the chassis is exactly the same, but feel free to check out a few biggie images below if you're overcome with disbelief.
