You know, there are $500 x86-64 boxes at the Fry's in Austin that blow away 
the capabilities of Morris.  (Too bad I'm in Pittsburgh these days, but I've 
got friends down there who can buy and mail something for me...)

What are your form factor requirements for a new box?  (Or do you prefer to 
buy it yourselves?)

Never bet against the cheap plastic solution.
