cherrypalThe CherryPal C100 Desktop is available for order.  They expect to start shipping at the end of July.  This little system is very promising.  The specs are below as listed on their website.  It looks very straight forward.  It has a monitor connectotion, 2 USB ports one 10/100 ethernet port and an audio out.  I would liked to have seen 4 total USB ports.  Once you connect your keyboard and mouse you’re out of connections.  Of course you could use a hub but that’s an extra device to take up deskspace.  Using a 400MHz Freescale chip and 256MB of RAM, I’ll be interested to see what kind of performance we can get from this.  At $249 it’s a little more expensive than I had hoped.  However, if it really runs at 2 watts as claimed, it would eventually pay for itself in energy savings.  I expect to start seeing reviews of this unit soon after Aug 1.  Good Luck!
