  fantastic.  that makes 6 (out of such a small list that's damn good)
- oliver yes did you get the off-list message i replied when you send
off-list, yes it'll be 1gb DDR2 and 1ghz S5PC100.

  so we're up to $3730 already (i'm putting in $3000 not $2500).

i got answers from james: he says that there's a $1150 engineering
charge and a $300-$400 SMT setup cost.  the cost of each 1gb/1ghz
SO-DIMM stays around the $43 mark: it's the setup costs that push the
individual prices up depending on batch sizes.

  no, this first stage plan is to create an upgrade for the CT-PC89E,
replacing the SO-DIMM.  this is like the absolute critical first bit -
get this right and creating a bigger netbook, bigger battery, better
screen etc. etc. is a breeze by comparison.
