    Hello
    recently I purchased linksys NSLU2 and found that buying some NAS (o
    consumer device) seems to be the perfect way how to get evaluttio
    board quite cheaply -- I'm software engineer, so I don't need all th
    GPIO's contacts on board available, mostly I'm just interesting i
    ethernet, serial for console and PowerPC processor (plus flash an
    RAM). Anything available? So far I've found just

    1) Synology DS-101g
    2) CerfCube 40
    3) Apple Mac Min

    every evaluation board for PPC which I've seen so far was about
    $700 even if they call it "low-cost"
    Thanks for any idea about cheap PPC system
    Kare

    1) Synology DS-101g+
    Kuro Box (Buffalo Linkstation) is also an option, but Kuro Box is a bit
    difficult to source in the USA at the moment - not looking good in the
    long term either. However Linkstation is readily available, e.g. at
    Amazon.
