You didn't list the Operating system...
Will it run Win 7, if that's what your plan is?

Which 'architecture' should be specified for the "Intel® Atom™" cpu:
BuildArch=x86 or:
BuildArch=amd64 ?

Ooopps, guess I answered my own questions:

Quote:
2GB DDR2 800 MHz memory, support dual channel, maximum memory capacity 4GB*

*Due to the CPU limitation, the actual memory size may be less than 4GB for the reservation for system usage under Windows® XP / XP 64-bit / Vista™ / Vista™ 64-bit.
I'd wait until November, myself...
x64 with LT 4GB don't fly with me, especially the "*Due to the CPU limitation" part.

Good luck with your choice, tho!
