well, i am no hardware guy, but just a humble application programmer.

how much would that be? i imagine, CaseKit + display + GTA04 board adds up  
to about the 750 € for a complete GTA04, wouldn't it?
and anyway, i don't think, i would have much use for the GTA02, board or  
complete, once i got an GTA04.

if nobody turns up with a good idea why s/he would need the board -- is it  
an option for you, Nikolaus, to keep the board once i send in the GTA02 to  
be made into a GTA04?
