    It's about the size of an AC to DC converting wall outlet plug, but is really a full SoC with a 1200 MHz CPU, built-in 512 MB Flash, 512 MB DRAM, Gigabit Ethernet and USB 2.0 support.

    Mix it with network via mains and you could have all in one. Configuration could be a problem though with no video output!

    Now that is very nice, I can't quite see how you would get the os installed initially, but the mind boggles at the possibilities.

    you need to learn more about networking mate :)
    NAT`ing on the ingress and egress interface is a bad idea.
    its not secure to do it on the same eth as a crafted packet can still get through
    is ok ill stick this router in there as well - still low power

    I thought it was an ethernet over power thing. :oops:

    So apart from the form factor, what's the diff between THAT and an old PC lying around gathering dust? :scratch:

    Yeah you don't seem to be the only one thats saying that, but there is hope...

    The CPU actually supports two GigE interfaces (as well as PCI Express and SATA). Perhaps someone down the road will expose those interfaces in a similarly small and cheap device.
