    I can recommend the Intel Atom systems too. They're fairly quick considering the specs. Just make sure you install plenty of RAM

    Some ITX systems are a bit of a mish-mash of specifications however using a desktop 3.5" hard drive, but a laptop DVD drive. It all works absolutely fine though.

    That machine is an Atom, yes, but there are plenty of others.

    The systems I recommended a client recently were from CCL

    You can either buy barebones or fully built to suit your needs. They were made of a good quality with a nice piano black finish

    For an ITX solution, i'd say visit LinITX.com as that's where I get any ITX stuff from.

    Our ITX systems are a asterisk + freepbx phone server + redundant backup.
