Thanks, Nux!.

But a few hours late.  I just purchased:


Zotac has been in the mini/nano PC business for a number of years, and 
this is a good price for the AD12.

I will probably swap the 320Gb drive out for my 1Tb drive, but as the

for the 1TB or what.  My backup drive is USB, but I have had some I/O 
problems with it (my earlier post), so I may switch my backup drive to 

I will post power and other numbers here when I get the unit.
