  • I have a couple Fit-PC 3s that I have for work.  They are okay, however Foxconn sells a tiny nettop based on the E-350 which is much faster and more modern (and 1/4 the price!)

  • Gumstix, Beagleboard, Pandaboard, etc. are all great barebone boards and don't come with any bulky stuff, some even have built-in WiFi which can be handy if you don't need super long-range comms.

  • Check out the Gumstix Overo computers (especially the Fire and Water). Haven't flown one yet but the power is there to run linux et al.
