Looks interesting. If it's fanless and can run debian then colour me interested! If not, I'll stick with my Shuttle XS35GT.

Surprised no-one's mentioned the reconstructed Cannonball Outrun or the accompanying LayOut track designer:

Not the original trilogy...

Doesn't it at least deserve a mention that these are not the original theatrical versions?

Top Ten Arcade Classics

The graphics weren't basic

"It didn’t matter that the graphics were basic - these games were addictive because of the simplicity."

This was not my experience at the time - the graphics were amazing, I remember seeing games like outrun and streetfighter and being blown away at how great the graphics were.

The point of reference for most people was their C64/Spectrum at home, and the arcade graphics were far superior.
