I pray for the day that the major plotter manufacturers get off their proprietary kick and make a device that takes NOAA raster or ENC charts...

Some of these netbooks have me intrigued. Some have built in EVDO/Aircards and even GPS. If someone "hardened" it for military use, then we'd be talking. Perhaps a touch screen...who knows.
