The $12,000 iPod

Aside from the goofy name, the Sooloos looks perfect if you have 12 grand to spend on a digital music system.

I’ll bet clever folks could build a similar system for under $2,000 using Windows Vista, which has a slick media player and supports touch-screen controls.

A 17-inch iMac is pretty close today for just $1,500, but its internal drive capacity maxes out at 500 gigabytes.

Can PC-based systems ever have the great industrial design of the Sooloos? Maybe, maybe not. But the PC’s evolving interface and falling storage costs really should make the Sooloos-type experience accessible to the mainstream.

I want one of these, for $1,200.
