|Personally, I bought one WSP at $200 and one a few days later for $49. I don't feel bad about the $200 purchase. I added an ISA IDE card I had laying around, a 1.2g drive I had laying around, plugged it into my TV, hooked up a USB NIC I had laying around, and some memory I had laying around, and now I have a whole computer.|
If you have to purchase all those parts, and don't have a specific need that the WSP meets (I'm building a car MP3 player, so it's a good fit), then all you gain is cool points/hack value.
I'll probobly buy another one at $200 if thats what it takes to get another one. These things are superior to the IO's in every way but the built-in (crappy) screen (which I'd like to pick up a couple to make diskless X workstations, once again a good fit)
