I have just learnt that the E-500 is to be replaced here in NZ, in August with a 160GB Machine. Other Specs not yet known - HOWEVER..... I am also told the E-500 is discontinued. Does anybody know what the replacement will be and any associated specs. The only difference between countries is normally the Disk size and sometimes tuner type issues/functionality. Any info people have would be greatly appreciated! Cheers, Jeff.
