Yes, I have an Asus E PC 1000HA. 1g ram, 1.6g Atom. Runs UI View, 
APRS+SA, findu and aprsfi in the browser. XP. Good general purpose 
computer, not blazing fast but fine.

10" screen. I found this at an ebay seller for $240 including shipping.

It runs on 12v  -- 12.000v not 13.8!   The one I bought has the large LI 
battery, it runs for 5 hours or so.

There is no serial port, only 3 usb ports, I've run 2 serial to usb at 
the same time, though. It also runs just fine the AGWPE softare / sound 
card tnc.

Oh -  this one has a 160g HD so plenty of room.
