It's smaller than a Mac mini yet capable of playing 1080p video (including Flash content) plus a selection of modern games. Conveniences like Bluetooth, USB 3.0, and an MCE-compatible remote are included, and the whole thing is incredibly hobbyist-friendly. The Nano seems to work pretty well with the XBMC-based OpenELEC distro, which is good becasue you have to provide your own OS. You'll be able to buy the ultra-mini-PC as a barebones sans hard drive and RAM for only $270, while a fully loaded config will only set you back $320.
