A couple of notes:
- Although the website indicates that you can order a unit without memory, you really can't. You have to order the unit with at least one stick.
- HS is waiting for the bugs to be worked out of the TV tuner before offering it as an option. However, it will be available separately, and installing it yourself should be a breeze.
- They're shipping it with PC3200 memory still, even though the AMD-64 DTR memory controller tops out at 2700. They won't substitute PC2700, even if you request it.
- The sales rep said that the heatsink on the GPU was "enourmous" and that heat definitely wouldn't be a problem on this unit.
- If you order a unit w/o a pre-installed OS, you should contact tech support after doing the base install. They can provide you with info regarding recommended drivers and version numbers for your model.
The rep seemed pretty confident on a 3-week ship date. I'll keep you posted as events unfold!
