This seems like a very interesting idea. It is pretty expensive though for just using as a mp3/gps system. But if I had the money for this I think this is the way to go. If you can load windows from a flash memmory card, I am sure you can yeild some outstanding boot and shutdown times. I achieved 17 seconds from power on to usable menus now using XP pro with carbox as my front end. That is using a standard laptop hard drive which runs only at 5400 rpms.
