Two things here really.. I’ve just seen that LinITX have started stocking the VIA NSD7800 Tower Storage Server. This amazing kit would be a great NAS device, perhaps running the open source FreeNAS software. It features an Intel Atom 1.5GHz CPU, and can support up to 1GB of RAM. If you pop on over to the Automated Home website there is a voucher code to get the full 1GB for free!

Second up, the MSI WindBox. The WindBox is an ultra-compact PC from MSI. It features a VESA mount interface allowing it to be wall mounted or simply placed on the back of your monitor. It also has the following I/O options:

  • Realtek 10/100 LAN
  • 3 USB 2.0 ports
  • a 3-in-1 card reader
  • VGA interface.

Pretty neat huh?
