    Peace,

    No, that's very true.. as I said, beginner carpc

    However, the quality of the RCA and Svideo on this is minty, really really nice (the best image I have ever seen on a TV that comes from anything remotely PC like)

    I suppose this would knob touch screen usage, but then the wireless keyboard for this does pretty much everything and you can always add in a USB mouse
    So guys, do you think this will help me score with chicks?

    You may just be wrong there Rafster me old pal.

    Who wants to solder a VGA onto these and find out?

    Now this sits right next to the other outputs, and I would imagine it's definitely a VGA solderpoint.. whether it functions? give me a few days

    Yes, that's a VGA header. Make sure you solder in the correct resistors if you are going to play with it.

    I found several that would ship to Europe.. Only thing is shipping-costs, something like $60 per unit.. Making it more expensive than I'd like to pay for a paper-weight

    If somehow I could get it to run WinCE 5 or embedded XP on the other hand...

    I live in Denmark, maybe we can have a discount on shipping-costs if we order two units.

    Can you get the hardware specs from that thing (i.e. what intel chipset? ) If so what's stopping you from injecting the correct drivers onto an nLited Windows XP running from a CF card. Replace thier CF card with yours, there's your windows XP??

    Am I the only one that noticed the 40 pin IDE solder pad? i wonder.. it stands to reason that the CF is attached to a HD controller.
