yeah the pinebook looks wicked cool and is cheap too. Only thing is Tequila wanted 250gigs and this is max 128. There is a microsd slot though but it'd be "external storage". You could set it up to just get mounted on the desktop automatically though i guess.

It has an ARM cpu so Idk if it would be suitable for their usage - desktop publishing especially, particularly if they need to use Wine with it to run Indesign. They should stick with an Intel architecture rather than a cheap cellphone chip that will be limited in what applications it supports.

I guess that the problem's in how the PC processors market is monopolized by two big companies, so any more grassroots tech business has no choice but to go for ARM for more open designs. Sux.
