Hi there!

Cc:ing Annette, who kindly provided the GNOME Events Boxes links.

also for not having included you in the loop before.  The discussion

FWIW, the PL-1500 are too small, we need at least the PL-1650.

Given the "ridiculous" [1] price (see below), I would go for shiny new

[1] I know that in a volunteer project like Debian any price is not
    ridiculous at all: what I wanted to stress is that these boxes are
    really needed, as anyone actually organizing a booth could testify.

If my estimations are correct, one *single* box should costs around 770
USD, Pelicase *included*:


  [300 USD] 1x case
  [200 USD] 1x demo PC
  [080 USD] 1x 17" LCD
  [070 USD] 1x keyboard/mouse
  [070 USD] 1x Wi-Fi AP with a 4-port hub
  [020 USD] 2+ power strips with worldwide adapter
  [020 USD] various network/VGA/USB cables
  [000 USD] lockable cash box
  [010 USD] debian-flyers - Print Advertising
  [000 USD] merchandise

Thx, bye,
Gismo / Luca
