For $35 you should grab one of these just to throw your OS and start up programs on, then just get a cheap USB 3.0 enclosure for the supplied HDD.

I'm sorry guys I'm betraying you and jumping ship to the R2 thread. I managed to order myself the T6700.

Please forgive me Dameyon.

Btw, does anyone want to buy this? I didn't even have time to open the antistatic bag.

Keen, but probably not the power supply. It would be a waste for me as it is too low wattage to meet my eventual needs. And depends if you would post it to Australia anyway.

I'd rather sell them as a package. But thanks for the interest. smile.gif

Out of curiousity, does that power supply plug straight in to the dock, or do you need to use the extra connectors to join them together. I've been reading you need to use the extra cables becuase the polarity is back to front.

Just bought another Alpha, this time for $230. Planning on doing some extreme stuff to it for ****s and giggles.
