seems to be the (Japanese) user guide for it. Now, erm I don't know
any Japanese at all, but there are lots of very pretty diagrams in there.
But the picture on 4/24, and table 1.4 on section 6/24
shows the OBSAX3/4/x with an Armada XP, 1.33GHz dual core,
1GB SDRAM, a SODIMM that takes 1 or 2GB (more??), SATA2, Mini PCIe,
4 (!!!!) GigE, eSATA, 2xUSB2, and 2xRS-232C.
Very nice! Pity it says available in japan only.
