Um, actually I was looking for any technical issues --- such as, what
kind of memory does it have, what's the video card (Intel, I assume),
whether the distro is customised or not, whether there's anything
particularly interesting about the motherboard, whether it's got PCIe or
AGP, that sort of thing.

Has anyone bought one of these and taken the lid off?
