Or you could get this with 4gb ram included, windows 10, storage, a battery, and a screen for times when you want to take it with you. https://www.amazon.com/Acer-Celer...merReviews

You would think this would be a good pfsense box, but it wouldn't. These have realtek NIC's, which do work, but I would never run in a production setup. They are unreliable, and cause to many issues in the long run (packet loss, dropping connections, not working at all). I know from personal experience (had this very box), and plenty of googling will tell you as well.

Great little box to build your own pfsense router! 2x Ethernet FTW.

Nothing, really. There's a reason you don't see many of these around. Desktop PC's are so cheap, there are very few scenarios where an underpowered box like this makes sense. I guess if you want to setup minimal remote access terminals or something...

I use it to host 5 VM at home. Domain controller, VPN, web server, SQL, and Win10 for remote access. If you limit the resource, it is very doable.

That's been my dilemma. For the same price and performance, a barebones nano box or an all-included laptop. I'm mostly leaning towards the all-included laptop in a future upgrade, but I'm definitely done with the 32GB storage limit (never again). You literally can't have anything installed when major updates come around; and even then, sometimes you still need an external drive for Windows to do the updates. The main selling point of these nano boxes is that you can use a spare SSD (because we all have a spare by now).

I used it as an htpc running Plex for a few years until I started messing with 4K and mine could not handle it. So now it's sitting and collecting dust and an nvidia shield took it's place.

My guess would be some kind of media streamer like Kodi or a retro gaming cabinet with emulators like MAME

I was wondering the same thing...Smilie
