Remember the SheevaPlug? Well, your "Linux computer the size of a wall wart" fantasies just got much more impressive. The new Marvell Plug Computer sports a 2GHz Armada 300 processor (none of that new Armada 610 hotness, sadly), WiFi, Bluetooth and a hard drive of sorts (Sheeva only offered 512MB of flash storage). The unit runs a few standard Linux 2.6 distros, and while it's marketed as a development platform for building embedded devices, the orginal SheevaPlug's $99 pricetag has us hoping for similarly good hobbyist-friendly things here.
