Thanks for the info.  Looks like the ideal machine for me.  I plan on 
being one of the first when it is available.  I actually like the 
fact that it has no drives other than the 10 gig harddrive. It does 
lack a pcmcia card slot which would be expected but with the 
selection of ports I can live with that.

And on the Directional base thread, thanks all.  There was a temp 
inversion with frozen ground on that morning.  It looks like a good 
explaination but one that is difficult to re-create.
