Well it is cheaper than my i.MX53 was, and at least the 1GB version
matches the ram. Both are Cortex-A8 at about the same clock speed.
The lack of SATA is a major minus in my book. That's a shame since the
CPU supports it, but they seem to have chosen not to provide a connector
The mali 400 video is nice though.
So looks nice other than no good way to attach fast storage.
It does also seem to be lacking a serial console port. Interesting.
I wonder how that works.
