Nonexistent. My big hope was for Megatel's promised PC/1, a 150MHz
Pentium with 32MB DRAM, 16MB flash, 100Mb/s ethernet, PanelLink display
out, and Small PCI connector. Originally promised by Megatel for July
1997, complete with price of around $2500 for a developer's kit, this
product has proved to be vaporware. I know of nothing else on the horizon
that could form the basis for a PC110-like device. The PC110 people
themselves have gone on to produce slightly larger things like Chandra.

All very discouraging.
