SFF PC - options for these requirements?

Thu Jun 25, 2009 3:48 pm

Hi all!

I'm currently researching a small form factor 'utility' PC, which I'm going to use as a sort of semi-embedded device.

I have the following general requirements:
- Low power consumption
- Low power DC cable
- Dual ethernet ports built in
- Serial port
- 802.11 b/g and maybe even n
- 1 gig ram minimum
- CF hdd, 4 gig minimum, but enough for MS OS + .NET + a minimal app and data footprint
- A small small form factor case (smaller is better)
- A case which can be locked to prevent tampering
- AND OF COURSE, as low a price point as possible

This machine will not have an attached keyboard, mouse or monitor, so it will need to run fine without them.

I can solve some of the items with components, but I've been looking for barebones that meet the requirements, and while I get close, I don't get exact.

Closest fit so far: I have looked at the Jetway JC300-B-J7F4K1G5D on newegg []
All this is really missing is the built in 802.11 and a tamper proof case. Otherwise looks pretty good!
Is this possible?
Any good suggestions?

Seen the Acer Aspire EasyStore? Also mentioned in TR.

Looks like there's a free 1tb WD green with that (combo).
