Right, I was getting that impression.

Actually, the Shuttle DS47 barebone seems to fit the bill on that score:

It's a celeron sandy bridge chip on the NM70 express chipset. Two
minipcie slots, one half size and one full size. It comes with a wlan
card in the half-size port, but can't find anywhere where it says which
one. Also it has a slot for a 2.5" drive (so you don't have to use the
big minipcie for msata), and dual Realtek 8111G Gbit ethernet. Even has
two external serial ports. The only thing missing is external antennae,
I think.

Also not *that* pricey (compared to other x86 boxes). I can get it for
~$290 retail here in Sweden (without disk and RAM)... Was going to go
for that unless someone comes up with a better idea :)
