I'm Chris, a computer engineering student in the US.
I work a part time research-aide position with embedded boards such as the Raspberry Pi, Cubieboard, and Beaglebone for use as in-flight computers on small RC or unmanned vehicles.
Last semester I gave away my laptop, and have been looking for a replacement. Unfortunately I didn't see anything on the market that I both liked and could afford, so it occurred to me to build my own using one of these small embedded boards. Until I started looking around for this personal project, I had never heard of Wandboards before
But since learning about them, have settled on a WB-quad as my desired driver for this hacked together laptop.
I have a multitude of questions about the board, such as how well the wireless antenna works, which desktop environments people have successfully used under Linux, how well USB 3.0 (if that's really what the blue port there is) works, etc. Unfortunately, they mostly struck me as the kind of questions I'd just have to generate answers for, so this morning I purchased a WB-QUAD and antenna kit from FutureElec. Should hopefully be here in < three weeks.
