Does the one he has still work? If so, any replacement is wasteful.  
The fact that another box had to be manufactured at all tips the  
scales heavily away from the "sensible" end of the scale.

I was excited for about an hour researching the Alix 1 XL, then I  
thought about what I'd actually be doing: replacing my functional if  
dodgey D-Link ADSL modem and Linksys wireless router with a $1000 PC.  
I'd prefer to spend that money on a remote control powerboard to let  
me reboot the D-Link when it hangs.

Then again when the D-Link hanging will cause the loss of several  
billion ISK worth of freighter and its cargo of advanced technology  
components in EVE...
