Hands-on with Moneual's tubular I*magine HTPC

Somewhere between the budget-minded 301 and the decidedly unaffordable Jewelry PC, Moneual has decided to cater to the mid-range market with an unusually shaped media PC. Showed at CEDIA, the tubular I*magine touted a sweet aluminum chassis, seven-inch touchscreen, 2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo T7300 processor, a 256MB ATI 2400 PRO GPU, 2GB of DDR2 RAM, a 750GB SATA drive, an integrated mic for voice recognition (huzzah!), and a top-loading combo drive to boot. Furthermore, it was packin' a multicard reader, Bluetooth 2.0, gigabit Ethernet, WiFi, HDMI, optical / 5.1 analog audio outputs, three USB 2.0 ports, a line-in jack, and a speaker on each end. Additionally, this sucka can actually be mounted upright on a stand (HTPC on a stick, anyone?), and according to Moneual, it should begin shipping to customers in the US "around Thanksgiving" for about two grand.
