Solves all the ram problems in 3, maybe 4 pins, and a couple of power lines.
BTW - It's a great idea. I've had the same types of ideas myself (along with probably hundreds of other people)...
PIC processor, USB keyboard, WiFi chip, GPS chip, SD card, FRAM memory, small TFT LCD, Wii-Nunchuck interface, blah blah blah.
I think it all boils down to cost. You take all those pieces/parts listed above and you could easily come up with about a $200+ bill for all the pieces/parts and you still have to put them all together and then write a program to run them all.
But you get a million cool points for having built it yourself.
Or, just buy a $200 refurbished netbook, and lose 99% of all your previous cool points.
I ended up getting a netbook (sigh)...
