    As far as I can tell, it's running a custom AMD processor as well as a full version of Linux (though which distro is still not known.) It's interesting to say the least, but I'm a little wary of the price. It's nowhere near as expensive as a gaming PC or a full console at launch, but it's also likely that it won't be as powerful.

    Nah, not just hipsters. Serious retro gaming enthusiasts love woodgrain.

    I don't think consoles have genetics... Unless you're saying it's a genetic problem with the trees the hardwood paneling is made from...

    The only excuse you could have for thinking I was seriously talking about genetics is not knowing what old Ataris look like.
