I'm planning on retiring on a bluewater sailboat someday.  but, what always occupied my mind was what computer should I use.  Even laptops need 120v to recharge.  That PC might just do the trick, rechargin off teh batteries which are themselves recharged off a wind vane or solar panel...

Haven't these guys seen the netop Ion platform that Asus has had out for months now? They're not over $500. The 1201N will have a dual core Atom 330 chip and be able to decode 1080p video and display via HDMI. AND it comes with a hard drive already. For $500!! Who the hell got the price wrong on this crap-box? It's even more expensive than a Shuttle X2700 complete system. For that price I'd expect a sweet looking custom HeatSync enclosure from A-Tech Fabrication. Some one didn't check the competition before they started development of this expensive little thing. You can't expect it to sell for such a premium price without an apple logo on it ;)

Check out the host of alternatives that are less expensive.

Shuttle X2700: http://us.shuttle.com/X2700.aspx

Acer AspireRevo: http://aceraspirerevo.com/

Asus Eee Box: http://event.asus.com/eeepc/microsites/eeebox/en/index.html

Or if you want a really cool case check out HeatSync cases from A-tech Fabrication:

There's a bit of something for everyone if they just want a tiny case. From shiny plastic to milled aluminim. Or you could buy a nano/micro PC case and build one of these, for half the price.

Built my gaming rig for $810 shipped with aftermarket gpu and cpu fans for my hd 4890 and phenom 2 940, and oh it comes with a hard drive.  PASS!

I'm not really a fan of small PCs (full-tower Gigabyte Aurora 570 desktop case and 24-in WS HP A7217A CRT here)... but that Stealth LPC-395F is rather cute.(Eek...did I just say "cute" in relation to a PC...HELP!!!)

OK, the price is just stupid. It's more than twice the cost of a cheap netbook, but without the keyboard and LCD panel. WTF is the point?

For that kind of money You should get a HDD,OS and DVD/CD.

A Mac Mini might be a better deal financially, but this Stealth is still a pretty awesome little machine.   Totally silent and barely using any power to speak of, in a tiny form factor which can be mounted nearly anywhere with those brackets you see in the picture -- tons of cool applications for that.

Dude, I gotta ask.  Why in the hell do you put "Nutcracking snack" at the beginning of every post you make?  I have been ignoring it for a while but its driving me freaking MAD!!! Haha

Hell, where I live just banned cellphones while driving so the look on the officer's face when he sees a guy on a nettop while driving must be priceless.
