I am not sure whether a dual core 1.4GHz has well based cerleron (http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=8919600) will be sufficient (in combination with a USB3 ethernet dongle to make up the fact that there is only one port built-in), but $179 seems like an acceptable price point, given 2GB ram and 16GB SSD. The cpu is a bit weaker than the one in Dave's NUC, 1.4 vs 1.7GHz, but $180 beats $310+ easily ;).
I wonder what it would take to install cerowrt on this and make it run well.
