Arduino + Netbook Robot

I really like the combination of using an Arduino microcontroller with a netbook. The netbook provides enough computational power to run things such as face detection, speech recogintion, mapping and other high level robotic tasks. The Arduino microcontroller, on the other hand, is perfect for real time control of the motors and sampling of sensor data on the robot. Maybe Dell should sell a Mini 9 with an Arduino built-in, similar to the old geekport.
