That's a pretty slick looking piece of hardware.

I'm disappointed it doesn't have a cartridge slot, but I'm very curious as to what games are built-in (if any). If this is an online only kind of thing I'm not interested.

I'm interested because it is new technology with the Atari logo on it, so I may have to get one. Importantly for me, I really like the look of it. It may not be everyone's cup of tea, but to me it honestly looks like what you'd get if you took Atari designers from the 70s and 80s in a time machine, gave them a tour of the electronics section in Wal-Mart today and then told them "make something that looks like it belongs here." Placed next to the other Atari consoles, I think it would look like it belonged, just with a few generations of systems missing between the Jaguar and this.
