There's a few boxes like this around these days; for people in the UK Viglen's Geode based MPC-L is also worth a look. The Ubuntu UK podcast folks reviewed one a while back and organised a deal with Viglen to make them available for £79.00 all-in.

Interesting - the datasheet doesn't say much about CPU, RAM, etc... good to know what it has.

Mine has 512Mb of RAM, cpuinfo reports the processor as a "Geode(TM) Integrated Processor by National Semi" at ~400Mhz and ~800 bogomips, and it has an 80Gb hard disk (yes, an actual rotating one). It came with a rather old Xubuntu, the speed of which was OK, but noticably on the slow side. I've since nuked it in favour of a text only Fedora 10 install, which it runs quite happily, albeit with the i586 kernel rather than the i686 one.
