Wrong link due to a copy & paste error. Should have been instead:

Which should mean that compared to the other CHF 700 box I found, it's
more feasible because the screen is already included while the other
box was CHF 700 without screen...

Actually, that seems not to be an "Intel _Atom_ E-Something", but just
an "Intel E-Something" which is actually an Intel Pentium. Meh.
Anyway, according to
it has VT-x and is 64 bits, but has neither VT-d nor hyperthreading.
So I unfortunately found no hardware with an Intel Atom E processor.
Nevertheless I think that looking for those All-in-One PCs may be an
option if we don't find something of the format we planned, too.
