Anyone have one of these yet? Been thinking of getting one. It's a Haswell Celeron "U" CPU, a 2957U I think. 1.4Ghz dual-core.

I really like that:
1) It's not an Atom, it's a Core-derivative Celeron
2) It takes a regular mSATA SSD, and not eMMC
3) It's not that expensive
4) It supports Windows 7

I would like to find out if it supports CSM boot, for Win7, and anyone's general opinions on this box.

That's kind of a saucy little device, isn't it?

It has a GigE NIC, any idea if that's realtek or intel?
