There was a A$214 option but that has now sold out. If you get to Indiegogo through this article you can get it for A$222/US$155 with free shipping.

I watched the 2nd and 3rd videos he did for that last night. It's a pretty cool little device.

It does look cool. I'd rather wait for one which uses the Ryzen 4000 series APUs though, which should be able to run PS3 and Wii U better.

Seeing the PS3 and Wii U at all was pretty decent though

I think between the RPi 4's potential and these awesome new cases, I'm about ready to do my own Retropie build. Not sure if I'd use the SSD cart myself, but I'm an old fogie that still uses 3.5" spinning drives for that 10tb+ capacity.

This is not my official Review this is a First look video at an early unit.
In this video we take a look at the upcoming GMK Nuc Box, They Claim its the world's most powerful palm-sized Mini 4K PC but is it really?
So this is an early review unit I have in my possession now and GMK will need to upgrade the cooling system on this box because it does get hot and I’m unable to really test this mini PC to its full potential but luckily it has not launched on Indigogo yet so they do have time to fix the issues before the final version ships.

I haven't got my non-Pro one yet, although it is in Melbourne now. Some people on the Indiegogo page are pissed about a new version already but I'm not that worried, the Pro is about AU$90 more expensive for a CPU that's 200Mhz faster and that's the only difference.
