Yes, too much. At $220 it's good value and with a newer model out now
I expect this price to drop under $200 AUD (inc delivery) during 2013.

I've got a 4 Bay 2.5" SATA Removable Rack for the CD slot so I see the 
N40L as a catchall for my future hand me down 3.5" and 2.5" SATA drives
on a real 3GB/s (maybe 6GB/s) SATA bus.

I see it as a centralised private cloud server with up to 12TB of RAID1
that is all-round useful enough to be just about anything, even a primary
workstation in a pinch with Radeon HD4200 VGA out.

Hereabouts (AU) they are very popular so I was kind of hoping that maybe
the N40L (at ~$200) could be the basis of an "official" 64 bit version
of CeroWrt based on the UML target.
