    Maybe it's just me but I really cannot see the appeal of this Shield thing.

    I don't either. It may have nVidia's stamp on it, but there's no nVidia card in it. It's like someone glued an X-Box controller onto a Nexus.

    Wi-fi, you can wake your PC on LAN through the new NVIDIA driver, login with your password remotely and then turn off your PC remotely so that you don't have it as a server running all day while you're away.

    Sorry if I wasn't clear, but I meant what kind of speed is required.

    I want a shield but I'd rather get it in the Summer when I can upgrade to a Nvidia GPU too as I'm using a Radeon 6870 atm. It doesn't help that the Nvidia Shield isn't officially on sale in Europe.

    Same.

    Yeah it looks like a clunky handheld console from a few years ago. It makes the DS look sleek LOL.

    I wonder if the shield will ever become compatible with AMD cards.
