That would be the TrimSlice (http://trimslice.com/). It would be a
very nice device to demo, having a sleek case, a dual-core 1GHz CPU
and 1G of memory, and HDMI out. However, software is not quite there
yet, you can only do a manual install (http://wiki.debian.org/TrimSlice)
and the display is not fully working yet. CompuLab has indicated that
Debian developers willing to help with the port might get a discount,
so if that is the case, you might want to ask :-)
