I couldn't wait any longer, so I just ordered a Wild Dog for my son. I will ask him to post a review after he has worked with it for a while.

Looks like you did a fairly good job of spec'ing it out.

I'm sure that my son will install Jaunty and write a review after his semester is over in Mid-May.

You will love your Wild Dog. It is a great computer. My son works on it every day. It's been rock solid for him.
