    With all the pros of this system, the only cons is its price. Currently priced as of this posting at $404.55 in mini-itx.

    Unfortunately, the ARTiGO A2000 it is too expensive  and underpowered for my requirement so I am building my own home server powered by Intel Atom 330 Dual Core. You can view  the result of my research on the list of available atom motherboards on this post.
