doesn't sounds budget to me either
I got a Samsung Galaxy Europa i5500 just before Christmas for £70, and I'm really pleased with it. That's more like what I'd call budget, not something two or three times as much.

Good to see a review of this, but there were a couple of things...
It'd be good to know Ubuntu ran on the £150 version, I'd imagine that most Reg readers would buy that one, as you suggest. It'd be good to know if it is still sluggish with Linux.
Also, I didn't understand why using a external BD drive would mean you couldn't put it on the back of your monitor. I'd have thought having it on your monitor with an external drive would work well, as the drive could sit on the shelf and poke out under the TV.
It'd be nice if it had component video out, though I realise I'm the last person on the planet to get a flat telly.
I was waiting for the Linux one to come out with a HDD, any ideas if a dual core version is on the roadmap? I guess it wouldn't be £150 though.
