Well for a board to be interesting to me it has to have:

SATA (which you have)

Ethernet (which you have)

serial console (in case things go wrong and nothing else works.  FTDI USB
serial interface is fine, which many systems have, often including JTAG
as well on the same USB connection.)

2GB ram would be nice, 1GB absolute minimum.  More is nice too.

HDMI is nice to have (which you have).

I know the iMX53 boots from SD.  Not sure what the iMX6 boots from.
As long as I can use SATA for my filesystem and only have to put the
boot loader somewhere (although on SATA would be by far the most ideal),
then NAND flash is of no interest what so ever.
