To add a context to this machine, the target in mind is a school in
Maroantsetra, Madagascar (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maroantsetra),
where we have a local group sending 12 XOs. Mesh under a tree is fine
for this setup, but they want to have a schoolserver, and this box
came up in the discussions.

The guy who will be taking this stuff with him is going to do so in
his luggage (http://thoreauscholar.org/student/scholars/golden.html),
so we are shooting for small boxes.

Amazon's page has no info on the processor, but I found more details
here (http://www.fit-pc.com/new/fit-pc-slim-specifications.html).
