Up until my catastrophic u-boot and debug board failure (grr..) I had  
been using my GTA01 for the last couple of weeks just fine as a  
really, really nice little python development machine .. I got an  
Apple Wireless Keyboard hooked up with it over bluetooth, and the  
combination of a fine little keyboard wirelessly connected to the  
GTA01 is indeed a very nice laptop replacement.  With a little bit of  
Terminal-font love, a well-integrated VNC client, and perhaps some  
stability in the windowing department, for sure the GTA01 - and thus  
the GTA02 - could function very nicely as a laptop replacement.   I  
really look forward to that eventuality, once I get a working and  
stable GTA01 rig up and running again ..

Count me in for a 6-pack of GTA02's, while we're at it.
