My ideal specs:
8" widescreen multi-touch LCD
1.67GHz Core Duo CPU w/2MB shared cache
1GB DDR2 SDRAM (two SO-DIMM slots)
80GB 2.5" SATA HDD
Intel GMA950 integrated GPU
Pivoting iSight camera
stereo BlueTooth headset w/microphone
All for $799. I'd buy.
Your CPU is too big/too hot... And your bus speed is wrong for that speed of CPU...
That is why I went with the Ultra-Low Voltage unit; only 1.06GHz, but OS X loves dualies... And the low speed makes it run cooler, thereby decreasing cooling needs (and increasing battery life)
I went with 2Gb of RAM because I am using integrated graphics, which leech from system RAM... More system RAM, better overall system performance & graphics capabilities...
Your HDD is also too big (physically), I want this product to be as slim as possible... Hence the 1.8" HDD (a la iPod)
The NAND is in there to keep things in NAND & RAM as much as possible, thereby reducing HDD activity, and reducing battery consumption...
I also went with the Wireless USB because I am trying to keep any openings in the units housing as minimal as possible... Although the ExpressCard/34 slot would be nice for interfacing the unit with various sensors/probes... Might also be useful to swap out various utility cards, Cellphone card, GPS card, etc. ...
The US$666 price point is a direct reference to the US$666 price point of the original Apple computer when introduced at the Homebrew Computer Club way back when...
