I decided on going for the EPIA M10k because of it's support for DDR266 and Firewire (mount my external HDD under DSL).
You can find pictures of it on my webpage. I will be posting a how-to on it shortly. I'm going to build a plexiglass case for it similar to John's little mini.
I noticed the Damm small machine is out - but I can't find a standalone nano-ITX board for sale! Whats with that?
|Why not just use the Morex case?|
I have an M-10000, Morex case, Sony CDRW/DVD, and a 40GB Hitachi Travelstar as my only computer.
No way I'm buying a case - making my own is too much fun! No CDROM for me - a 300GB external drive (burnt a huge hole in my wallet) holds all my ISO's and backups... Thanks goodness for loopback devices!! I've never owned a desktop computer - just 2 laptops - and only 1 at a time .. this is my first "desktop PC".
It did cost more than $200 but it is bulletproof running linux.
So much for me staying under $200!! My new budget is $350. And bulletproof? What kind of case did you use!! LOL.
