That looks rather neat and I'd gladly buy one... But the question is when will it be available to customers like us?

Well if it does come out at the price they say, I'm definitely buying one... This is just perfect for a robot project.... Small, low power, relatively powerful CPU, lightweight.... And it's got USB and wireless!

if you want a real cheapie wait till August for the Asus Eee to come out. $200 w/ 4GB flash HDD, or $300 for a 8GB flash HDD.
from another geeky forum I go to.

I would buy to run the robot programs and controll it. I bought one on ebay for $150.00 + $54.00 tax that I do this on.

It's PC-104 on the inside so its way more expandable. Consumes way less juice,
and judging from the case, way tougher. To bad it has a higher price with lower
horsepower.  :-\
