My Latest Toy
« on: March 11, 2014, 09:41:08 PM »
Gigabyte Brix Pro i7 4770R 3.2GHz w/ Iris 5200 GPU
16GB Match G.Skill 1866 CAS10
Samsung 840 EVO 256GB

Future Upgrade: Samsung mSATA 1TB HDD
WIreless: Intel 802.11AC if I get tired of compiling Linux drivers because there's currently minimal support for the onboard Realtek 802.11AC card.
OS: Most likely Ubuntu unless all HW except wifi work w/ CentOS 6.5

Right now, nothing much other than browsing and testing.  I have to test out Ubuntu 13.10 since Intel don't release Iris drivers for Ubuntu LTS 12.04.x



Long term, it will be used for Photoshop while I learn how to use Gimp better and bunch of other little things for my small business.

8GB is allocated for Ubuntu LTS and 8GB is allocated for Windows 7 virtual machine.

TIme to buy more toys; dual 27" screen, NAS, UPS, etc...

This is smaller than a mini-itx motherboard.  This is a little over 4" x 4" while mini-itx is 6.7" x 6.7"  It would also be a lot thinner, but I bought the Pro that has room for the 2.5" drive and Iris 5200.
