I am still awaiting mine - I also ordered a WiFi and wired ethernet card for it - and I probably won't load an alternate OS on the device, but w/r/t resale value, if it can run Linux/*BSD it has muh more cache/value in the used computer market.
I'd prefer not to deal with a $100 rebate, though I've had good luck with rebates in the past, I'm not comfortable with that big a rebate...
The $75 (AR) price is for a complete setup, incl. a docking station...
