Asus makes osme of the best motherboards. I've been running their
boards for years. They also have some nice lookin mini formfactor PCs.
I'll have to check the pix.

Again, I'll have to check it out...
However.. anyone who knows me probably would guess I was hoping for an
iJunk killer... so obviously I'm dissappointed with this in THAT way
(not that iCrack is actually the king of anything but marketing and
lemming sales), but also... 3 hour battery life? If it need to be
plugged in that often, it's not "ultra-mobile".
However, I have been saying I do want a tiny do it all machine and I'm
betting this might cover most of "it all".
As long as I can still install firefox, gaim and openoffice :)
