Be warned though; those VIA Cx and AMD Geode CPUs found on most 
fan-less boards aren't anything like workstation CPUs. Incredible 
power *per Watt* - but you'd need to run one at several GHz to get 
anywhere near the slowest Socket 775 Celeron you can find.

Don't know how they handle FPU intensive work, but I'd suspect it's 
even worse. Has anyone tested that?
