they are super cool, and so small that i can't find mine right now.

they have only a small amount of FLASH onboard for bootup, but if you need 
more you can use a USB stick as a boot drive :)

only 32mb RAM but you can upgrade to 64mb if you can solder surfacemount 
with hotair :)

and they have GPIO pins like any good microcontroller, and a TTL serial 
port that can talk directly to a regular microcontroller (which has 
burlier, 5v GPIO pins for driving your robot)

openWRT is a really neat project, and it even has its own package manager 
that is super cool.
