    personally i think this thing is way overpriced at 1200 US dollars, it's
    only interesting for people who want to scratch with CD's...i don't know if
    that's such a big audience of potential customers....
    ofcourse it looks great, that is another major sellingpoint....

    i myself am much more interested in the finalscratch system, as it's
    software based so the specs can be updated very easily..
