    And it is a bummer that I am no way in a position to start a company building computers like that. Else I might have been first, lol.

    Anyway, ARM is coming.

    I hope a more powerful version springs up from this for 2x the price. Wouldn't mind one of these with a dual core arm, more ram and built in Wi-Fi, oh and the latest Android would be nice. Also I'd rather see headers for ports instead of the connectors, but I understand why it is how it is.

    It's compatible with the other ATX standards so it should work with any of these. Or the EM-154B, which is even smaller (here is a build with it being mounted on the back of a monitor, it's in swedish though but the pictures are there).
    Sir B. Fannybottom says thanks.

    At this point the hardware is moot. Anyone that knows a thing about android knows its all about the ROM. If the rom sucks, the best hardware doesn't mean shit.

    I'm gonna stick with my tab that has a dock that has HDMI, Ethernet, USB, and power. Not to mention wifi on the tab itself.

    Not really, i hardly install rubbish in my phone, but Gingerbread has this habit of starting the service in background which i don't need.

    My 7" "chinatab" with an Allwinner A10 (Cortex A8) 1GHz and 512MB (384MB available, 128MB GPU) and ICS 4.0.3 idles at 148MB RAM used. 512MB is sufficient for such a cheap device.

    I love these small computers that are coming out.

    This and Raspberry Pi is an excellent start to what I hope is a large trend.
