Big 7" colour screen
Records directly from your cable & satellite box using Yahoo’s on line schedule
40GB to store 170 hours of video or 100 movies
DVD quality playback on TV via DivX3 & MPEG-4 files

The bad news:  about $1,000 . . .

This is the latest in Archos’ portable video series; The prior units have been:

The Archos AV 400 20G [3] is $419;
The Archos AV480 [4] is the same player with an 80 gig drive is $599;
Lastly, the Archos AV4100 [5] — its got a 100 GB HD — is $729   

You gotta think the prices of these will come way down — otherwise, it makes more sense to buy a cheap laptop.
