Thanks, I think these could be a contender.  I think I had originally 
discounted them because the price seemed a little more, and they were 
pitched at being a desktop replacement, and I picked up the rumour that 
with Windows tie-in, getting Linux to run on some of them could be a 
challenge.  I now suspect all that isn't true.

I had mentally settled on the EdgeRouter Lite, new @ $170, but the NUC 
is worth considering.
