Just how economical? Who is a good reseller? I looked at a few of the
resellers on the list at, and they all seemed to be
integrators and VARs; I'd like to find some place that will just sell me

buying the other components and putting it together.

I've wanted a non-PC box for a long time, and will jump at the chance if
the price is ever right (I'm talking comparable to a similar horsepower x86)...
