In my search for other small computers, I came across the GOLE F2, don't recall the earlier version that I originally found.

This is a bit over the $100 price tag I'd like to stick to, but their G1 (gen 1 I assume) was originally at $99.

People complain about the Windows license on this thing, which is fine, I'm not looking for it as a windows device, I just wanted an intel based small form factor device. The plus on this one is that it has a built in 7inch touch screen as well, how well I'd be able to get linux drivers for it is to be seen. This one only has 2GB ram, tho there are other models with 4GB.

So my quest continues, but this is a contender in that search at least.
