I'm running the 1.6GHz Bania. I'm not special enough to have access to an engineering release of the Dothan. Bummer, cuz I think that extra meg of cache is going to be sweet.
Justin2-- whilst that puppy is in the shop, maybe you can get a peek at the display. Has anyone figured out who's making them yet??
IceKiller-- I'm dual booting FreeBSD on mine. The 1.6 crunches source code like no tomorrow. Have yet to bring KDE up becuase I've been too busy. The next release of XFree86, 4.4, is scheduled for release in early '04 and presently at RC3. It will support the M10, so don't worry about having to buy any of the commercial distro's to get the Xi Graphics server. I also don't have acpi working yet with FBSD, but also haven't yet tried, and just disable acpi at boot time.

They can fit another keyboard into any model, according to their website.
