That is so fantastic, I'm looking for my Visa.

That, plus a wifi router and a true GPS, would turn my iPhone into the world's best carputer. And it would all fit into my glove compartment!

The more I think about it, the more I want several of these.

It makes a perfect firewall appliance, among other things.

Web server.
Media server.
File server.

The possibilities are endless.

I was planning on a low-cost, low power Intel Atom build to replace my PII rig I've had running basic services like DNS/DHCP, file server, etc. It looks like I'll be getting at least one of these sometime.

If VIA wasn't charging out of the ass for the PicoITX Artigo kits, I'd be getting one or eleven.

Yeah ... this spanks the pants off anything I could build for $100. It has an SD card slot for added space and a USB port. Attach a USB hub to the port, throw a couple of 8GB sticks in there, and you've got a decent little NAS attached to your internet appliance.

I do think that this is the perfect PC for a car, though. You can take it out when you aren't using it!

Yeah... I saw this a while back.

I've been wanting to get these.

A nice little cluster of these would be frigging awesome.

Anyone know where we can purchase one of these? It says it's available immediately, but I've never managed to find the purchase link.

It'd make for a great file server. :D Buy a couple 1TB hard drives, slap it into an enclosure and attach it via USB.

Instant 2TB-4TB server! >O

I've been considering how to make a cluster with these working in parallel... should be an interesting project when I get around to it.
