It would be cool if we could ensemble some laptops preloaded with
UbuntuStudio and perhaps had some kind of contest with them as prizes,
or something. It seems like a fun project for the community to
undertake. We could vote on it piece by piece and document the
process. We could then release a guide on building a laptop DAW and
promote UbuntuStudio in the same swing.
