64Mb SODIMM memory, 64Mb CF, 3 ethernet ports.  Natty black case, built-in 
240V PSU, single PCI slot (5V only) and mounting space for a 2.5 HD.  Has a 
serial console.

This is somewhat more than a Soekris or WRAP, but when you look to the 
slightly higher spec models they look cheep for what you get.

For me, I wanted to avoid the mini-ITX format with all those sound nozzles, 
VGA connectors, mouse holes, etc.  This box gives me a Soekris 4801 with a 
lot more power and real estate to fit stuff in the box.

Other models have an optional 2 line LCD with 4 key keyboard that interfaces 
via a standard serial interface.  Could be fun for some projects - just need 
to figure out how to get the m0n0 console menu into this format :-)
