I searched the Soekris site and can't find a comparable board. The top-of-the-line 6501 (http://soekris.com/products/net6501.html) looks great, but expensive.
I think a board must include:
512 MB RAM
SD card socket
something for a console, such as a serial port
WIFI IF, perhaps attached to a PCI Express slot
tiny board size
wide operating temperature
All devices supported via the Debian repository
cheap price tag
and to go with it
case, in a plug computer configuration
ideally, a battery that can cover a few minutes of power loss
No SATA ports, audio, LCD screen or other bits.
