    Uhh, whats an arm and a leg worth these days? I saw no gross price for a unit on the website linked to so how about a ballpark to set one of these babies up?

    Not very much, where I am from! Around $4,000 for each one with a cap of total loss of limps and life for around $12,000.

    In Iraq, it is even much, much less. In Afghanistan, it is probably a dollar or two.

    Buy Now

    16GB Flash. You can upgrade to SSD or eSATA for a buckfifty+

    It's advantage is low power consumption, 22 watts.
    No fans, so is silent.
    I'm interested but I would like to see 3D available first.
    They offer VESA mount option for putting onto the back of your big screen.
    Would be great as a workstation where deskspace is limited.
    Price is too high to turn it into a router utm, though it would be perfect for that.
