    I can buy an AMD based system from my local Fry’s today for $179. Where is my motivation to go against the grain and buy this, outside of “sticking it to the man”?

  2. screaminscott says:

    If you go to the link, it appears this is a Chinese company, making products for the Chinese.

    So their motivation is to rely on local CPU’s and software, rather than imported Intel and Microsoft products.

    The entry on the Make Blog probably should have mentioned that.

    This box is not a very powerful system, but it is
    a fanless system that is very suitable for servers
    and gateways at homes and small offices.

    That AMD from Fry’s comes with Linux on it.
