    That 1gb on board storage does not make any sense

    for me this console is still too large; make it smaller like reducing the height which minimizes the bezel(The bezel’s also an eyesore).Also, they must extend it to at least 8-10 hours because i think that’s the ideal battery life for a gaming device.
