I could see the video driver being an issue.  The Latitude I have at work 
has a wide-screen display that needs the special nvidia drivers to work at 
an acceptable resolution.  Monitoring 24 simultaneous channels would 
probably also make a dual-head option something to consider.

I'll have to look into what impact the video driver could have on a later 
2.6 kernel that's been configured for low-latency operation.
