Yeah, $500 is overly optimistic. Can't see how you'd squeeze a decently sized SSD in at that price point. However, they're still ~3-6 months away, so that might help. If AMD manages to snag some decent design wins, it'll probably mirror their current offerings. $100-150 less than equivalent Intel-based chassis for worse CPU and better GPU under same TDP.
