My TrimSlice Pro arrived today, so of course, I have to do the unboxing ritual.

Okay, so now that the pictures are out of the way…
I’ve had the dev-kit for a while now, and I’d say, if you have 320 dollars to spare, and want a dual core ARM, and are a *developer*, this isn’t a bad deal. If you are a home user/end user, and want… flash/skype/purple ponies/perfect video/audio/whatever, don’t get it. The software support is being worked on hard, but it’s definitely not at an end user stage right now.

One thing to note, while the die cast case helps to dissipate the heat… this causes it to get *very* hot. It does have 4 rubber feet on the bottom though which cause it to be raised so it’s not just a “hunk of metal” sitting on your desk.
