The Yawarra rigs are dire with any sort of mediocre load. I've had a
couple running as firewalls, and they just don't keep up with the
traffic throughput on a commercial link (4Mb fibre). The use of notebook
memory and CF for storage works well though, and I agree, they don't
require a lot of power.
