yee of little faith!
my alarm at the moment is a nearly 10 year old cd player which makes a
bloody annoying hissing sound on even the slightest of scratched cd's,
and occasionally refuses to play the thing so i sleep in and be late
to lectures..
my h300 on the other-hand has 20gb of music which i wouldnt mind
waking up to, has a decent clock, an AC adaptor (which is plugged in
most nights anyway), connects to either my stereo or portable
speakers, and would be great as my alarm.
and as for a reliable RTC.. its proably as reliable as your PC one...
