Then this is freakin' killer, dudes/dudettes. Talk about "thin" clients! All we need now with this thing is a USB hub for the keyboard, mouse, and ANTonline USB-to-VGA adapter, and we're done. Nobody'd even *see* the computer. A little mini-GNU/Linux distro with just the essentials (network stack and X11) installed on that built-in flash drive would DO THE TRICK!

I do like the idea, but am hoping something similar will eventually come around with some dedicated display chip embedded - maybe even something that could do hdmi out if it doesn't make it too expensive. I suspect that a USB->video adapter would be quite a load on the CPU. Maybe someone will hack a full linux onto the $99 Roku netflix box.

Yep, that's why I'm hoping that they eventually come up with a version with built-in ATI Radeon that'd do 1920x1200. Wouldn't be that expensive if they use a non-31337 g4m0rz version of the chip.
