This looks good for one particular purpose: Controls. While I do have a fan controller (or will, once I put Blue Wilhelm together), I first looked at ones that didn't fit into a 5.25" drive bay but rather sat on the desk next to the monitor. Alas, all of them were pricey, although some had interesting features, like an RSS news-tape-like display.
This seems like it could do more, holding all those Desktop Gadgets and perhaps applications you want to keep open all the time (and which don't have large windows). My only concern is whether there's some odd system focus thing that goes on, so that you lose your arrow pointer when fiddling with a touch-screen control; I'll look into it.

This can also be hacked around the bezel areas and made into a CarPC's Head unit running off a Atom powered PC. I was only waiting for these babies to arrive in a big way - as in more general availability at lower cost!! $129 is a gr8 deal.
