Yup, the day it dies, a modern mini-ITX it is. But until then...it keeps chugging. Hell, I doubt I could even find replacement RAM if the RAM died. It's ...gasp...DDR2 800.

There's the mac mini size...and (for a server) a 4U size. I'm assuming size by itself is not an issue?

I'd keep the name of the speaker as "10-99". Plain and simple. :)

The designer's name is under that anyway.

Erich - Just raise the price of the kits by an appropriate amount. You don't have to explain yourself.

The value that these kits offer far exceeds the cost of a Starbucks.
