That hardware is a big improvement over the current ALIX series with Geode
Gotta wonder where they come in on the pricing scale? Time will tell. ;-)
Thanks for sharing.
*If you purchase one I'd appreciate a review. :-)*
And to think I've been eyeing up the Ubiquiti Edge Routers  (but they're
$99 USD as opposed to nearly $200 USD or more for whatever the new APU
