"Probably the single most important question to skeptical DIYers is "How hard is it to assemble and get the OS installed"? Rest assured, the assembly part couldn't be easier, and with Linux as the OS it just works. Two thumb screws expose the inside of the box, and all you really have to add is memory. You'll probably want to add a hard drive if you plan on using it as a desktop machine.

"At the heart of the Shuttle XS29f is the Nano, Via's first 64-bit processor in their x86 line. The Nano delivers high-end performance with low power requirements.

Two internal SATA-II connectors support internal storage."
