Hopefully, this table will show up properly. If not, it's a quote I got from synertrontech.com about
two weeks ago. The 533mhz model with 3 realtek nic's is $269 including power adapter. That's $5 more
than I paid for a 4801. There are other configurations available as you'll see on the website. 

SYN Series

44.5(H)x440(W)x178(D) cm

What is the price of it? Its hard to find on the site. I would like to 
see it a little smaller, though that's not a big deal for indoor 
installations. One good thing about the Soekris is that you can do 
POE, it doesn't look possible for this unit. I think the 533MHz would 
make up for the encryption accelerator, but I don't really need the 
encryption anyway. On the other hand I do like the fact that you can 
easily add a hard disk into it later on if you want to add a proxy 
cache or a RADIUS server onboard.
