Subject: Archos Total Cost of Ownership
From: TP Diffenbach (rockbox_at_diffenbach.org)
Date: 2003-12-10


55 weeks ago, I bought my Archos FMR for $270
In April, I replaced the hard drive with a 60GB for another $170
Today, I sent it to NewMp3Technology to have a short fixed for $110

That's a total cost of ownership so far of $550.

A 40GB "3rd generation" iPod costs $499.

Other than the fact that I love knowing I can hack on Rockbox, was getting
the Archos worth it?
