    Mobile variants runs pretty cool compared to their desktop counterparts, even the T series CPUs.

    Oops how could I forget our resident Sys Admin? :D

    Yeah, the "mobile" part is key.

    Custom hardcore Linux for routing, but not very efficient.

    Or

    Etthernet LAN security camera system, but still not really efficient, and then the serial goes unused...


    I see a lot of applications for it, but not one in specific that really makes enough sense to justify it unless its really cheap, and for some reason I don't think it will be. Seems more a like a engineer somewhere had a specific application they needed it for and a hard on to spend the money.

    Same throughput, easier configuration IMHO.

    Only upside to this device may be higher throughput due to more processing capability, but that is even questionable.

    That case design is pretty sexy and I like the colored heatsink. They need to sell that case on its own for DIYers.

    actually the cost on the sonic is way overpriced for what it does, could get something for the same features for half price on advantech / logicsupply... $1100??

    Closest I see is a blade server with Untangle for $649

    I have used Sonicwall, I may try Untangle on a spare PC and see what it does here first.

    However it looks like http://www.untangle.com/store/configurator/ costs per year and more than the cost of a Sonciwall.

    I suppose if you are forced to run high bandwidth applications with high security the option with the 9 port and untangle may get you more, but that would be a very select few applications.
