"What makes you think Home Server, an embedded storage device, will be cheaper?"

Pricing has already been announced around the 500 dollar mark. Compared to most NAS devices, that's a bargain seeing as you not only get a full fledged computer, but an OS as well.

That's almost twice the price of the Asus that was mentioned earlier in this thread and 4 times as much as the Buffalo Pro LS-250GL (250Gb). Not really a bargain by any means.
