I would also like a thinner board if possible. You could do away with the
combo USB/ethernet and put just the ethernet and maybe just some USB
headers. The customer could use USB header adapters to put the ports where
they want, or not wire them up at all. (Assuming that headers would save
SATA booting would good.
I would like to see some embedded display port and/or regular display port
on the board. (LCDs have been available for a few months now)
Having dual monitor capabilities (or quad) out of the box would be nice
too. (no changing resistors, etc)
I would like to see the other LCD interfaces kept though, even if it means
resistor changing. For instance there are some MIPI WUXGA displays that are
under 10 inches, should be able to plug them right into a Pandaboard. In
fact I like the idea of plugging 2 or 3 into one. Could make for a good
dual screen device.
I also like the option of more RAM.
With dual channel DDR3 support maybe you could even put 2 desktop RAM slots
on the board. 4/8/16GB dual channel kits are cheap now. (16GB for $80 now)
Since the new OMAP5 is gunning for the existing PC/laptop space I think we
should try to support a good size of RAM.
BIOS support and some kind of boot loader would be nice. I don't know if
this is supported already on the Panda but there are going to be people
that want to dual boot on the OMAP5, especially if they are testing Windows
RT and linux.
