Audio is just music. The D1 does have an onboard computer, but it is not a PC.

My guess is that it's an odroid xu4 situated neatly on a PCI network card with network to usb interface fitted to allow you to run an OS on the odroid xu4 that runs current webpages efficiently through a remote X window in IRIX.

All of a sudden everybody buys an O2 - because why the hell would you run this in a noisy PCI card cage in an Fastfan Octane!!

We're talkin' SGI pricing so...

$5k entry level,
$15k well equipped
$80K professional
$500K commercial

Actually answering your support calls is way extra, like a lot more money...

Support call cost variable, depends on how much I have to pay my teacher to let me take a call in class :) . Probably the only time calling at a weird hours is CHEAPER. In all seriousness, while I do not plan to offer telephone support, one-on-one questions via email or forum are welcome once the product launches, and software updates should be published when needed or when I have something new available, in addition to the regular updates for the software installed on your unit (e.g. new versions of Firefox, etc should be fully compatible just by hitting update without any sort of D1-specific patch or config).
