Hm.. I want one for a firewall such as Untangle.
Can't afford it though.

Same... A nice deal, sure, but for what I'd realistically use it for (a seedbox) I'd still need to buy a decent sized external hard drive. It's hard to justify that when I've not made the commitment to buy a large drive for my backup enclosure that is still sitting empty.

I ordered one of these on ebay on April 1 (really), and it arrived pronto.

Pros:
Fast (for $99) Pentium M 18. Ghz (SL7EN)
1 PCI slot (occupied by PCMCIA reader, changed to wireless LAN)
1 10/100, 1 10/100/1000 wired Ethernet
Realtek AC97 sound (sorry, just 2 channels out the back)
44 Pin laptop HD interface (with power) - used by CF card reader
Transcend 120x 2GB CF card
Low power (80W power supply, box takes 12VDC from AC adapter or ???
40 pin IDE - I used adapter to attach PATA 60GB 2.5" laptop drive
Two molex power plugs - I used one for HD
Actually room for 3.5" IDE drive or 2.5" drive (mounting for either on sled under PCI card
Nice little case (no sharp edges, fits securely, easy to get to all parts.

Cons:
Loud fans (and a bit dusty)
- replaced CPU fan with Silenx Ixtream Pro 40
- disconnected 'chassis' fan
No video card interface (must use the integreated Intel shared 32M)
Max 1GB ram (ITX limit), only DDR (not DDR2)
Static knocked BIOS config out (from front panel)
Drivers on igoLogic site didn't work for me (XP Pro)
- Found drivers easily from Realtek and Intel (852GM video, chipset)


My application
I wanted a small, quiet box for my TV console that would receive Internet radio stations, and play flash video streams. Although I expected to install Linux on the 2GB flash, I had a laptop drive lying around, so I put XP Pro on it (SP3). Works great!
CPU runs warm (idle 50C, max about 65C when streaming Flash video), but max for this CPU is 100C! I may give some Arctic Silver a shot the next time I pull the cover. The video is fine with my Sony Bravia 1360 x 768. Sound is good (directly through my amp), no noise that I can hear.
If you want to connect a laptop PATA drive directly to the 44 pin header, you will need your own 44 pin cable (the one to the CF card reader has some wires cut).
I didn't try to connect a 'slim-line' CD, but there's a slot on the front and a sled for one.

Bottom Line
Highly recommended.
