    Official statement from HP,"The MediaSmart Server EX485/487 is currently available in the United States and Canada. Given demand for the first generation MediaSmart Server and general interest in Home Servers internationally, HP expects the MediaSmart Server EX485/487 to be available in other countries such as those in Europe in the coming months."

    You write: "Hardware being showcased in the booth includes … the 2nd generation HP MediaSmart Server…"

    Somewhat ironic, considering that HP has withdrawn the MediaSmart Server products from the European market, and, as far as I know, has not announced any intention to re-enter it…
