Very nice.  However, if you want something even lower-power, don't need
any more digital horses than it provides, and don't mind some geek-fiddling,
you could look for a Netwinder.  At 14W, you can't get much lower power.
General specs are 275MHz StrongARM (yes, you run Linux on this sucker!),
64MB of RAM, and a 10GB HD.
