OT: Awesome cheap hardware

From: Phil Sieg 
------------------------------------------------------
Made a great find:

Newegg has little Atom powered Foxconn NT423 Nettops for $115 sans drive =
and memory.

Bought a Patriot 32gb SSD for $56 and had the necessary 2gb sdram (ddr3 =
204 pin) on hand.

Under $200 shipped with SSD and screams with Ubuntu 10.04. TOTALLY =
silent.

I am using as my customer service terminals with 24" monitors each =
station under $400.

Would also make a kick ass asterisk box.

YMMV but I am ecstatic. Gonna sell my 4 Mac Mini's for enough to buy 6 =
of these boxen and go back to being a Linux/Unix shop!
