Charlie,

Okay, I guess I've never seen one plugged into a conventional monitor. I
wonder what resolution/refresh would be supported.

Well, if our architecture requires a cd burner, this is good. Right now,
this is the architecture we're working with.

I called the company (www.wintergreensys.com ) that makes them and got
passed to the president, John Levy. He is sending me an eval unit. He
knows about the voting system certification process because others have
looked at the "minibook" as a possible platform. He sounds pretty
interested in working with us.

I would say it's *very likely* that this is the PC that will be the first
one certified for use with the OVC software.

We'll probably include several printers to be certified for use with it.
Over time, we'll grow the list of PCs, printers, monitors, etc. that are
certified for use with the OVC voting system.
