	i have that page open [in another room].  all the asus Eee's
	look nice, but i'd like more meaty info on these computers.
	since you're already running 8 on the 900, maybe you can clue
	me in.  what's the speed of your Atom CPU?  CAn you run anything
	X--(X Window System)?  also, how far can you go before you max 
	out your computer?  RAM, SSD?  I only want todemo that a freebsd
	computer w/ keyboard can be used with the KDE accessibility
	apps.  tts primarily.  something i could use with the festival
	speech tools.  

	i almost choked when i saw the windows touchscreen [heavy]
	device for 8000-9000 dollars!   i thought,, um, will
	the electrons would melt if i told my thoughts!  in civil
	language, it blew me away.  given all the brilliant, open-source
	stuff plus reasonably-sized (and *affordable*) hardware, it
	seems like i should be able to cobble something together at my
	non-profit paradigm for MUCH less than 8K
