AnandTech | ECS LIVA Review: The Nettop Rises Again

AnandTech | ECS LIVA Review: The Nettop Rises Again Looks an interesting bit of kit, I think the Intel NUC will look huge and pricey next to it. Could be good for wired media home projects where and x86 with more power might work better than a Pi/Beagle/Arduino set-up.

We are calling for reform of the legal framework so the intelligence agencies stop spying on us.
