The hardware is, surprisingly, little more than a standard PC. Microsoft only offers one configuration, which uses a 2.13GHz Intel Core 2 Duo CPU with 2GB of DDR2 memory and about 250GB of storage. An ATI X1650 graphics card runs a 30in DLP projected display at a resolution of 1024x768 pixels. There are host of output and input connections, including six USB ports (the demo unit had a Bluetooth module connected) as well as RGB and component video outputs.

You can cobble together a similar specced machine for about $1000, though you won't get the multitouch or object identification capabilities. For that, you'll need to pay $21,000.
