Hi Luke,

it would be very nice if you would make a "full disclosure" about 
your project, intentions, intentions for the community and for genesi.

also It would be nice to have an idea of the timeframes you have in 
mind and if, after the components are chosen, we will be able to get 
engineering prototypes of the board or engineering samples of the 
actual device, specification, etc etc

None of us is probably interested in yet another CT-PC89E or Gdium, 
but a ${foo}board like those from designsomething.org (3rd 
incarnation of Efika maybe) using good modern but realistic (and 
oss-friendly) components powering your 12" netbook and maybe other 
devices could be very³ interesting.
