These are fairly nice from a power consumption perspective.  The 320M of RAM is 
fine for non-graphics operations.  There is 32M of flash that might support the 
right-sized linux kernel and minimal software.

It's fairly attractive from the feature perspective.  The price is a little 
high, without a case included.  And, adding the daughter cards for the serial 
port interfaces would increase the cost.  But, you have to pay the price that 
"is" to get the product you can.
