    I just got my Gumstix Basix 400 in the mail today! :smile:

    This is such a cool little computer. It is literally the size of a stick of gum and runs on Linux. My goal is to build a portable microcomputer complete with touchscreen lcd, audio out and recharable battery pack. The case will probably be made out of plexiglass, although it would be nice if I could make a custom injection mold model.

    Who needs to buy an ipod when you can just build one! :tongue2:
