Me too, as well as reviews for the Phenom express and the Uniden PPC :-(
But I have one and like it a lot. Some reasons. Only grayscale unit with a
near laptop size keyboard, biggest grayscale display, 33.6k modem, CF and
Type II slot etc. Accessories are relatively cheap, a battery pack from NEC
for 10 bucks and a 32MB memory upgrade from Kingston for around 100 dollars
(this one fits also in the MP750)

Faster processor, standard more memory and even bigger screen. Apparently it
is one of the fastest units around.

I am waiting for that too, they are relatively expensive now (799) compared
to the Phenoms/Compaq and HP color HPCs and the new HPC pros that are
appearing, so I am sure they will drop down before they get dumped.
Just my 2 cents,
