So tomorrow my son is having his 11th birthday, we bought him a few small things, but apparently he has been trying to pawn his grandma into getting him an android tablet.

Quick to the ball I came up with a better plan.

I showed him the Nvidia Shield. He is extremely excited about it, but the $300 price tag means he knows his grandma won't be able to afford it.

This means, he will still be surprised/excited when we sit down and allow him to order one from newegg. Who knows, maybe by christmas time they will have had all the kinks in the pc streaming sorted out and we can get a new nvidia powered desktop.

(Update) I ordered it :) newegg was sold out so I ordered straight from nvidia.
