If you are refering to: http://openblocks.plathome.com/products/ax3/

$740 is beyond my budget.

the mirabox is also a bit pricy:


But then probably most stuff like this will be more than $50 :)

And your search foo vastly exceeds mine.  All I find is:


Can I stack a few of these together?



Can I hack this to put Fedora on it?  Actually, I will be seeing a 
number of Marvel people at IEEE 802 meeting in a month.  I should see if 
they can get me some raw hardware to play with :)

I am going to ask around on the cubieboard forums to see if anyone there 
might know how to build on ethernet.
