For those looking for a mediaplayer only, how about getting a Moboplay instead, with the adapter, casing and cables plus wifi stick the prices are probably comparable to what you would ahve to spend on the raspberry as a mediaplayer.
So now you can leave the raspberry for us hobbyists/programmers
I had planned to reply to the OP to say:
Off the top of my head, how about the fact that a RasPi could stream media from a networked home media server whereas that device cannot? And... the RasPi could also provide you with the ability to do a bit of web surfing on a 40" TV, perhaps while still playing the aforementioned media. And the RasPi could also do... well, let's just say "loads of stuff that the media player can't".
But as he's been banned I shan't bother, and as he's acting like a six year old I shan't reward him with a response... Oops.
On other topics, my take on the lack of women in Tech is that it's down to how Tech subjects are taught. Geeks are perceived to be much, much cooler than we once were but few people will enter a profession which doesn't grab their interest in their school years. I was fortunate enough to be in school during the home computer revolution of the early 80s and also had teachers who were enthusiastic hobbyists and encouraged us to think creatively about the technology. Hopefully a shake-up in the current school IT curriculum, perhaps combined with devices like the RasPi, will lead to a revitalisation of that spirit.
Oh, and as a most definitely male geek I have to say that I would definitely buy a raspberry coloured case for the RasPi. Not pink, mind you, raspberry... there's a difference
