Dear John,

Indeed, xps is one solution. If you're willing to try another
approach, you can also use the oligo package. It's experimental, as
described in one of the vignettes, but the following should get you

## enable large dataset management
## set a place for temp files
## otherwise it'll use the current dir
cels = list.celfiles()
raw = read.celfiles(cels)
core = rma(raw, target="core")
exprsCore = exprs(core)
## save in a tab-delim file
write.table.ffdf(as.ffdf(exprsCore), file="core.txt", sep="\t", quote=FALSE)
## if you think you have enough RAM for the expression matrix
expression = exprsCore[]

In case you observe anything unexpected, let me know.
