SolidRun has for sale these little CuBox computers, little 3 watt devices weighing 91 grams (3.2oz) and measuring just 5 cubic centimetres (2x2x2 inches). It's interesting that it uses a microSD card for storage. Just curious of the longevity of such a memory system considering Linux's high i/o requests on /var/.

Designed as an open source development platform, use CuBox to create your own media center, thin client, XBMC console, network attached storage device, or anything else you want. Boasting 1080p full HD output, HDMI out, and a full gigabyte of RAM, it's incredible what you can create with this tiny device.
