Requirements are pretty simple:

- Small (sub mini-itx), and cased (looks like a product)
- USB port to plug in a 3G dongle would be nice.
Some of these:
have two ethernet ports
No! None of them have two ethernet ports. That box has 1 gigabit
The docs say otherwise.
and NetBSD support has been added a few months ago.
Really? Can somebody point me to it please?
and it's not too bad once someone with access to
the hardware adds support for CPU clock scaling ( what I added is
Gdium-specific but adapting it to this machine should be trivial -
you need is an external 100Hz timer interrupt )
Frequency scaling on these is a waste of time and effort. They run
under load and consume next to no power, what's the point?
Tell that to my Gdium, which has a 900MHz Loongson 2F. At full speed
it gets pretty damn hot. And it's the actual CPU since it runs a lot
cooler at lower speeds.
