    By the time I get 'mine', they'll be sold with an optional case. Till then, I'd hazard a guess of the board being sold bare in a box. Does not matter that much.
    What accessories would you be interested in?

    A guy did design a plastic cover, it will definitely be available at some stage.

    Accessories that I've seen include a power cable (in short a cellphone charger), SD cards, etc.
    eg. Memory Card, Power Supply, Cables, Keyboard, Mouse etc.

    Ja, but this thing is small enough for you to mount anywhere in a box (ice cream box) or even behind your monitor/LCD TV.

    Actually it's small enough to hide in your cigar case

    All stuff one would probably rather buy separate (as It'll be cheaper).

    Only thing I'd consider buying from them would be an SD card, unless I know that the Sandisk ones I have (all high-speed ones though) will work. The charger - any recent phone will use the same charger.

    A case would be nice - I'm aiming to plug this in the TV as a "Smart TV"/HTPC option. Other than that, wireless connectivity would be nice. SD cards are not an issue, not sure about power cables. Would they be necessary while plugged into a TV?

    You can use a USB-mini-usb cable to plug the Pi into the TV (other way round) as a power source.

    Ah, good point. Why a mini-USB though? I though I saw a full USB port on that board (my TV has a full sized USB-in port).

    The Pi uses mini-usb as its power-source.

    Awesome. I need to go read that spec sheet again. It makes sense though - and frees up the USB for wireless.

    Yep, if it's a media centre you want, it can run XBMC.

    So if a non-magnetic port means no ethernet connection then... why do they make non-magnetic ports?

    Or am I missing something?

    Good question.... all I've got is a crappy answer with something of the lines of "no friggin' idea".
